The goddess of learning,
the giver of knowledge,
one with abundant charm..
Oh ! Saraswathi
we invoke your blessings
this night on the eighth day
of navaratri.

Give us wisdom,
make us clever,
sharpen our wit
drive us to understand,
bestow us with charm
bless us with wisdom,
a plea from the depth,

Accept our gratitude
and let this day center
on thanksgiving.
