Pange Lingua in Filipino

While doing the Eight-Day adaptation of the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius Loyola, I did a vernacular translation of Saint Thomas' Pange Lingua in Filipino. I tried to observe rhyme, measure and rhythm, although it was a little difficult since Filipino words usually have more syllables than the Latin, so that the new translation can be conveniently sung according to traditional melodies without excepting the possibility of a new musical setting, that can also be fittingly inculturated, composed at a later date. (Last Holy Thursday, Ron Alquisada and I were able to compose such a simple, Filipino tune. The practice Mp3 and minus one are found below)

More importantly, I strived to be faithful to the narration of the history, as it were, of the most holy flesh and blood of Christ, born, poured out and immolated for our redemption. O let our tongues always sing of this glorious Body broken so that we may be whole!


PANGE LINGUA
Mga titik ni: Santo Tomas de Aquino
Salin sa Filipino ni: Leo Ruiz Ocampo
Musika ni: Leo Ruiz Ocampo at Ron Michael Alquisada

Aking dila ay purihin
Banal Niyang Katawan
at Dugong mahal Niyang tunay
sa lupa iniluwal
pantubos sa sala natin
binuhos Niyang tanan.

Sa 'tin kusa S'yang binigay
sa Birhen isinilang
at sa atin nakibagay
pinunla Kanyang aral
turo niya ay sinabuhay
bago N'ya 'to tuldukan.

Sa dakila N'yang hapunan
nagsalong kapatiran
tinupad munang kailangang
hain sa Kautusan
at saka Niya idinulang
hinain Kanyang laman.

Salita na nagkatawan,
Tinapay naging laman,
at ang alak ay Dugo naman
at kung 'di malasahan
sa puso ng totohanan
tiwala ang tutuwang.

Ay! sambahin nating lahat
Sakramentong dakila
Tapos nang pag-aaninag
Pag-ibig bumabaha
'di mo man maunawaan
tiwala ang tutuwang.

Ay! purihin, ipagdangal
Ama't Anak n'yang Banal
gayon din naman itanghal
'Spiritung nag-uumapaw
ihayag kanyang pag-ibig
magpasawalang hanggan.

Amen.
