Track Name: Slendro Sanga Wantah
Patetan Sanga Wantah
Sang saya dalu araras abyor kang lintang kumedhap,
Titi sonya tengah wengi lumrang gandaning puspita, E---
Karengganing pudyanira, O---ng
Sang dwijawara mbrengengeng,
Lir swaraning madubranta,
Manungsung sarining kembang

In the night when the stars glimmering is consumed by dark
Through this midnight comes the scent of flowers
In the seclusion of a prayer
Dwijawara's humming
Like the voice of the Honeybee
Arousing the essence of the flower
(Translation by JK)
