The Lord's Prayer in Hiligaynon

Hiligaynon (known popularly as  Ilonggo) is a language spoken in Western Visayas in the Philippines.  It is very distinct from Tagalog. Hiligaynon is the native language in the provinces of Iloilo and Negros Occidental. It is also spoken in the other provinces of Panay Island, such as Capiz, Antique and Aklan. It is even spoken as far south as Mindanao Island, such as in Cotabato and Sultan Kudarat.  Many people of the Visayas and Mindanao areas speak it although it may not be their first language. It is estimated that around 10 million Filipinos can speak Ilonggo with some proficiency. This is the Lord's Prayer in Ilonggo with English translation. 


Amay Namon, nga yara sa mga langit,
Pangmuyoon ang Ngalan Mo,
Mapasaamon ang kaharian Mo,
Matuman ang imong kabubut-on, diri sa duta pakadto sa langit,
Tagai kami sa amung kalan un sa adlaw adlaw,
Kag pasayloa kami sa amun nga mga sala,
Kag mapasaylo man kami sa mga nakasala man sa amun,
Kag indi Mo kami ihatag sa mga pagsulay,
Hinooa luwasa kami sa mga panulay,
Kay sa Imo man ang kaharian, kag katakos, kag himaya,
Karon kag sa katapusan. Amen.
Our Father who is in heaven,
May Your name be honored
May Your kingdom be ours
Your will be done,
Here on earth like it is in heaven.
Give us now what we will eat everyday,
And forgive us of our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Do not allow us into temptation,
And deliver us from all evil.
Because Yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory ,
Now and forever. Amen.
