Until old age (အုိသည့္တို္င္ေအာင္)


What is good until old age?
What is good when established?
What is the precious gem of humans?
What is hard for thieves to steal?

Virtue is good until old age;
Faith is good when established;
Wisdom is the precious gem of humans;
Merit is hard for thieves to steal.

Kimsu yava jara sadhu, kimsu sadhu patitthita
Kimsu naranam ratanam, kimsu corehi duharam

Silam yava jara sadhu, saddha sadhu patitthita
Panna naranam ratatam, punnam corehi duharam.
