Father GB’s song: Sabaiyum Peruganum

Standard

Song composed by Gnana Bhaktamitran.

[My father, feeling that Tamil hymns and lyrics, generally, do not have the depth that English hymns have, has for his church hymnal, identified some good hymns, translated many hymns and choruses from English, and composed some lyrics. He has recorded the accompaniment for all the songs in the hymnal, and these are available in MP3 format. I will try to showcase some of them in this blog from time to time. All recordings have been done at home using very simple equipment. These songs may not be copied without permission.]

Here is a recording of the song Sabaiyum Peruganum sung by Prathiba Surendar and Amala George (members of EBA in Madurai) and accompanied by GB himself.

Transliteration

Sabaiyum peruganum; nadippum kuraiyanum
Aavi nadathanum-aam Thooya
Aavi nadathanum-aam (2)
Idai vidaamalae jebipome yae-ha-maai
Saathaanin kanniyil sikki-vidaamalae
Sabaiyum …

Anbinil theyranum, Iy-kyam valaranum
Aaviyil jebikanumaam –Oonmai
Aaviyil jebikanumaam (2)
Vaakiya dhyaanamum mana-theli-vumaai
Kalla-podhagathil yae-maari vidaamal
Sabaiyum …

Oolaga aasa baasam maamisa sodhanai
Yerichalin aavi veyndaam –Endrum
Yerichalin aavi veyndaam (2)
Sabai koodugaiyil yae-ga-maai jebithu
Aaviyil yaavarum niraindhida veyndumaai
Sabaiyum …

The church must increase; artificiality and hypocrisy must decrease
The church must be guided by the Holy Spirit
Let us pray without ceasing
Being careful not to get enticed by Satan’s snares
The church must increase; artificiality and hypocrisy must decrease
The church must be guided by the Holy Spirit

Love must increase, unity must grow
We must pray in the Spirit
With meditation of the word and clarity of mind
We must not be deceived by false teaching
The church must increase; artificiality and hypocrisy must decrease
The church must be guided by the Holy Spirit

Lust of the world and the desires of the flesh
And a spirit of strife, we do not want anymore
When the church gathers, let us pray in one accord
That everyone would be filled with the Spirit
The church must increase; artificiality and hypocrisy must decrease
The church must be guided by the Holy Spirit
