“Doa Pengampunan (Forgiveness Prayer)” by Leroy Oddy Teo

Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions is an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends from around the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.

In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with Leroy Oddy Teo singing “Doa Pengampunan (Forgiveness Prayer)” in the language of Bidayuh, and based on a prayer by the Bab.

This song was filmed and recorded in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, September 2019.

Here is the quotation used for the lyrics in Bidayuh, followed by the English translation and chords:

BIDAYUH:

“Ngin tabie tudu Ingan, O Topa ku. Ampunt leh dosa-dosa koih, masie tudu koih Bia odak leh koih dapod nuna Ingan. Nai koih odak jok-eh sinongak tudu Ingan, Masie ngibonar koih tudu onik de suka Ingan Duoh de odak Ingan. Pakat leh odop-eh dimutik de mok bonar-bonar bisayak. Bia masie ngapunt bala dimutik pakai pingapunt Ingan. Ingan leh De Jadin Pinulong daang Pinusah, De Pingidip.”
-Bab

ENGLISH:

“Praise be unto Thee, O Lord. Forgive us our sins, have mercy upon us and enable us to return unto Thee. Suffer us not to rely on aught else besides Thee, and vouchsafe unto us, through Thy bounty, that which Thou lovest and desirest and well beseemeth Thee. Exalt the station of them that have truly believed, and forgive them with Thy gracious forgiveness. Verily, Thou art the Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting.”
-The Bab
