Ita Sei Haksolok


Hosi: Yohanes Manhitu

Osamean, ha’u la kaer iha liman
Maibé domin, ha’u bali iha laran.
Se ó hakarak ha’u lahó kondisaun
No nafatin lahó aljemas,
O feto, loroloron ha’u sei hadomi ó.
No tuir destinu, mai ita la’o;
Livru lulik mós, mai ita sani
Tanba hosi nia ita kuru soin.
Iha rai, doben, mai ita hadomi.
No ho Maromak ita sei haksolok.

We Shall Be Happy

By: Yohanes Manhitu

Gold in hand I have not
But love in the heart I keep.
If you love me unconditionally
And forever without shackles,
O woman, everyday I shall love you.
And according to destiny, let us walk;
The holy book, let us read
Because from it we take riches.
On earth, darling, let us love
And with God we shall be happy.
