“Life Long Lamp”
By Gar Samdup Tsering
Lyrics: Miss Tsering Kyi
Composer: Gar Samdup Tsering

An image of heroic Gesar
Suffering unbearable pain in flesh and bones
Blazing on the lap of the vast land
Kinsmen, listening to tales of ancestors
May you sleep peacefully

Shaken by the thundering hooves of Songtsen Gompo’s cavalry
Unsurpassable life force glow like fire
A light of hope shines in a dark land
Kinsmen, raise the bones of the great father
May you sleep peacefully

Life ablaze in the lap of the night sky
Each flaming offering fades into the vast space
A life long lamp enters my mind
Kinsmen, searching for ancestors of flesh and bones
May you sleep peacefully

[Translation by High Peaks Pure Earth]
