Old Song – GHANTT – Bab Peter lyrics: Roseferns
Dis zalo mhunn gomoita, kannant avaz sokallimcho,
Devacho ugddass korunk xinkoita, avaz donparamcho,
Rath zali mhunn gomoita, vell zatoch aimorecho,
Christanvank ho vhodde gorjecho, toch avaz te ghanttecho
Ghantt akho sonvsar gazoita, amchim festam porbo zatanam,
Ghantt khuxealkai rigoita, amchim bhurgim komoineanv ghetanam,
Ghantt amkam sogleank ansoita, munis zolmon taka Christanv kortanam
Ghant amkam sogleank roddoita, ami moron fondan vetanam…
Bhurgim vaddon zatoch vodlim, mai paiche girestkaiek zogoddta,
Tanchi doulot apnnak meuchea pasot, tamkam veginch moronk magta,
Aikotoch avaz tea ghanttecho, tim apleach bitor guspota
Aiz maka ani faleam tuka, hacho ghantt amkam ugddass kaddta
Ghantt dhormachi nixeanim, sukh dukh gomta ti vaztanam
Mornam, festam, porbo sobo nam, ghanttecho avaz nastanam
Thodde gorban ticho sangat visorta, tim yetat ugddass kadinastanam
Punn ghantt tancho sangat soddinam, vazta zolman tosoch tim mortanam.
