Maria Magdalena Mary Magdalene

Veritas vos liberabit Veritas vos liberabit

Magdala Tarichaea, nane ho kuan. Magdala Tarichaea, that is your village.


Es onnane, Magdalena njail ho fam. So, Magdalene became your surname.
Unû atoni ka npiô fa leko ho lalan, In the past men didn’t trace well your way,
es ka namlilê fa he ntek ho kanam. so they were unhappy to call your name.

Sin nak, unû oras Guru he nbukae, They said, when the Master was about to eat,
ho mhaumake meik ho minfomenî. you approached him with some perfume.
Mupét haene meik nú fun ho mkae. You made his foot wet with your tears.
Ma ume nanan naheun nok fomenî. And the house was full of fragrance.

Ho ‘nakamnafum a-njail toli anoset, Your hair became a wipping cloth,


ho mnek In haene, okê ho mupete. you kissed his foot, and made it wet.
Nbi ume nanan nae, ho bifé ameset. In the house, you were all alone.
Atoni-sin lof nakan, “Hoé, mi’éte!” Men would say, “Hi, look at her!”

Me meûsinê nemen neu pah-pinan But light has come to the world
ma atoni nahín ho ka bifé asanab fa and men knows you weren’t the sinner
lê unû neik fomenî neu ume nanan. who once brought perfume to the house.
Ho bifé es kun, ho ka bifé alahî fa. You were different, not a sinful woman.

Ho mutatuina Guru nbi In lalan You kept following the Master in his way
tala tabu In a-nsutai nbi haukrús. until the hour he suffered on the cross.
Oras In nakalab meisökan aükan, When he defeated the reigning darkness,
mûko oupu, ho muskeken Petrus. from the tomb, you made Peter surprised.
