Dungan is Soul

They would make of you
A zipher, those who
Rule the world by might.

Ano bala ang dungan?

You with soul of one
Who knows but God,
Who would lead by right.

Sin-o ang madungganon?

Whence comes their power
They from whom
All power flows?

Diin halin ang ila dungan?

Is theirs not a gift from Satan
Who would sully such a one
In whom God's favor grows?

Sin-o ang mas gamhanan
Ang ubus nga kay Hesus
O si Kulas ni Satanas?
