Hosea, Come Back to Me, Ilokano Translation

Standard

 

HOSEA, COME BACK TO ME

HOSEA, AGSUBLIKA KANIAK

 

Translated into Ilokano by A. Solver Agcaoili

 

Come back to me with all your heart

Agsublika ditoy pusok

 

Don’t let fear keep us apart

Di buteng mamagsina

 

Trees do bend though straight and tall

Matukkol ti kaykayo

 

So must we to others call

Kasta met, kadatayo

 

Refrain:

Long have I waited for

Nagbayag nagur-uray

 

Your coming home to me

Kaniak/ sangpetmo

 

And living deeply our new life

‘Ti sidong/ mangabaruanan

 

The wilderness will lead you

Mangitunda ti parang

 

To the place where I will speak

Lugar a pagsaritaan

 

Integrity and justice

Kinatakneng ken hustisia

 

With tenderness

Kinadungngo

 

You shall know.

Maamuam.

 

Refrain:

Long have I waited for

Nagbayag nagur-uray

 

Your coming home to me

Kaniak/ sangpetmo

 

And living deeply our new life

‘Ti sidong/ mangabaruanan
