Makidyapat, our Creator

This is a prayer in a form of a round song. It tells us about the Dumagat asking God to join them in defending their land from the companies and governments who taking their ancestral lands away from them (Construction of Meca Dam, Pacific Coast City)

Makidyapat, aming manlilikha
(Makidyapat, our Creator)

Samahan Niyo kami sa pagdepensa
(Join us in defending our land)

Sa Tulaog, so kabundukan
(The tulaog, the mountains)

Tahanan, pagkakilanlan, at buhay.
(Our dwelling, our identity, our life.)
