|His Majesty the Fifth King.|
When the chilly winter gave its way to the warmth of spring sun
When the season of aridity was replaced by season of humidity
When the leafless trees gave new flush of vigorous buds
When the days of emptiness changed to days of work fullness,
Like the new dawn clearing the days of gloominess
Like the silver moon paving its ways amid dark clouds
Like the golden ray of morning sun striking the soil of doomed land
Like the rivers of bountiful draining the land of poverty,
A boy was born, a noble birth in the spring of 1980.
A fulfilled-wish for the royal family, and the heir to the golden throne,
Hope for the rising nation, and joy in the heart of Bhutanese.
Lucky are we Bhutanese, having blessed with such a gracious king.
By birth he is human but by deed, he is divine
His home, a tiny wooden cottage amid the chir forest
Yet referring it the “Palace of Great bliss,” and his passion,
Meeting the people of all walks of life, during periods best and worst.
With profound wisdom and boundless compassion,
His only worry is for his nation and the people
Rendering selfless service day and night, near and far,
He is source of inspiration for us, towards service of Tsa-Wa-Sum.
Fortunate are we Bhutanese, having been blesses with such a benevolent king.
For the limitless care and love that you showered us,
And for the guidance and paths that you have directed us.
For the light you have lightened in our soul, and for everything,
That changed our lives; we salute you, our beloved king.
On the auspicious and joyous occasion of your birth day,
I joins the fellow citizens in celebrating the momentous day.
With solemn dedication and heartfelt gratitude,
We pray for His Majesty’s continued good health and long life.
Long Live His Majesty The Fifth King of Bhutan, Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck.
May the sun of peace and prosperity shine on the soil of Druk Yul till eternity.
