CHAMORRO RELIGIOUS POETRY : I Estasion - #9 and #10

9. Katna måtai i Saina-ta, ya poddong guine ta'lo;
sa' i baba na bidå-ta, fuma'baba i palo.

(Our Lord, almost dead, falls again,
because our evils deeds corrupted others.)

10. Ma na' kesnuda i Saina, Bithen Låhen Maria;
 i baba na fina'tinas muna' mamåhlao siha.

(The Lord was stripped, son of the Virgin Mary;
our wicked deeds brought them shame.)
