Singing in tongues

Singing in tongues

Trafalgar Square

I was hoping to have my Acts song ready to share by today, given that it’s Pentecost, but I haven’t quite finished it yet.

It is really coming along, and I’m excited that my friends have contributed (singable.. not strictly literal) translations for the multi-lingual bridge:

English:

Jesus lives, Jesus reigns
He will save all who call on his name

German:

Jesus liebt, Er regiert
Und er rettet all die ihm vertrau’n

Japanese:

イェスは 生ける王 求めよ    救いの主 
yesuwa      ikeruou     motomeyo sukuino shu

 

Indonesian:

Dia hi-dup… Dia ber-kua-sa… Sla-ma-nya Dia a-da-lah Tu-han

I’ve even got it in Tamil, but so far only in the Tamil script, which I can’t read, so I need to sit down with my Sri-Lankan friend in order to transcribe it phonetically.
I’d be keen to add Mandarin and Spanish, if anyone wants to have suggest something – or in any other languages for that matter.

What do you think?
