There comes the consummate one

ওই মহামানব আসে 
Oi mohamanobo ashe

There comes the consummate one,
All of earth is exuberant,
Her grass shivers with thrill.
Conch-shells sound in heaven,
On earth, rap drum-beats of victory.
Approaches the moment for a great rise;
The hold of a moonless night
                        Shatters to dust.
In deep hope of a fresh start
There, where the sun rises over the hilltops,
'Have no fear!', sings a chant.
'Victory to emerging humanity,'
Thunders a voice in the vast sky.
