Original Greek lyrics by Λίνα Νικολακοπούλου:

Poetic, singable translation by Λέων Ιερός:

Now, come sing the praise of life
Say, the sun again will rise
Gaze its rays now with such new eyes
Be happy like a child
because you, too, once used to be a child

Yes, the sky does know your heart
Yes, the sky that seems so far
My! the night, too, and all bright stars
They all know here on earth
so many hearts
such aching wounds they hide

There! Look at that giant wheel
There! A turning giant wheel
that beckons, Ride up here
See again this lovely world

Love, I do know it’s gotten hard
to believe my words of nothing but
God’s beauty in this life
See, I am here by your side
All this darkness will be over
All these clouds be swept away

Flow, there is no turning back
Flow, time’s oars do what they must
Flow, all hours so fast they fly by
Grief washed away by rain
So white, pristine
the flower feels no more pain

Flow, there is no turning back
Gone, sometimes no answering back
Gone, but every wise soul tells us
Whatever we hold dear
In the heart forever can live on
Whatever we hold dear
In the heart forever it lives on

Come sing the praise of life
Come sing along with me
Come sing the praise of life
