Tagalog and Translated English Lyrics: “Panginoon” by Yeng Constantino

Jan 9, 2014 | Comments

DISCLAIMER: I’m not fluent in Tagalog but I am Filipino. English is my first language. This translation is improvised in some parts and relied heavily on Google Translate and my (very limited) existing knowledge of the language.

I love Yeng Constantino (Filipino singer). I put this song at the very front of my Filofax to remind me of two things: to be proud of being Filipino and to keep my mind focused on God. I find Yeng extremely inspiring. I honestly have a huge crush on her! She’s beautiful, has an awesome voice, and has a strong faith in God. I hope you enjoy!

Ako’y walang saysay
Akala ko ako ay tunay
Pilit na nilalakbay, ang aking buhay
Ngunit nag-iingay

Ang aking kahapon
Paulit-ulit bumabalik
Nakikitang sarili
Lumalangoy ngunit sa putik

Ngunit iba ka
Paano mo ko nakita

Pinulot mo ako
Nung akala kong ako’y nag-iisa
Kulang pa ang tinig ko
Para awitan at purihin ka
Panginoon, panginoon, panginoon

Ngayon alam ko na
Ang ibig sabihin ng mabuhay
Ngayong kapiling ka
Hinding hindi na mag-iisa

Dahil ikaw ang liwanag
Sa gabi tuwing ako’y tumatangis
At ikaw ang umaga
Sa pagmulat ko’y nakangiti

Ako’y nasasabik
Sa iyong pagbabalik

Pinulot mo ako
Nung akala kong ako’y nag-iisa
Kulang pa ang tinig ko
Para awitan at purihin ka
Panginoon

Kulang ba kahit ibigay ko ang lahat
Maging ang buhay ko’y hindi pa sapat
Ngunit hayaan mong ibigay kong lahat
Nang ang puso ko sayo’y maging tapat oh
Panginoon

Pinulot mo ako
nung akala kong ako’y nag-iisa
Kulang pa ang tinig ko
Para awitan at purihin ka
Panginoon

Pinulot mo ako
Nung akala kong ako’y nag-iisa
Kulang pa ang tinig ko
Para sabihin kong mahal kita
Panginoon, panginoon, panginoon

I have no worth
I was sure of it
My life is a strained journey
But loud

My yesterday
Repeatedly going back
I saw myself
But I was swimming through the mud

But you were different
How did you see me?

You picked me
When I thought that I was all alone
My voice is not loud enough
To sing and praise You
Lord, Lord, Lord

Now I know
The meaning of life
Now that You are with me
I'm really not alone

Because You are the light
At night when I'm depressed/crying/weeping
And you are the morning
In my smile

I'm excited
For You to come back

You picked me
When I thought that I was all alone
My voice is not loud enough
To sing and praise You
Lord

I don't have a lot to give even though I give my all
Even my life is not enough
But I'll still give everything
My heart is true

Lord

You picked me
When I thought that I was all alone
My voice is not loud enough
To sing and praise You
Lord

You picked me
When I thought that I was all alone
My voice is not loud enough
To say I love You
Lord, Lord, Lord
