#AtoZchallenge: Dan KasihMu



And to follow up with ridiculously hard to find songs, GMB doesn't seem to have their song "Dan KasihMu" on youtube and the best I could find is this cover.
Which isn't all too bad, except that the beginning of the song seems to be cut off.

Anyway, lyrics with (my extremely crappy) translations here:

Besar kasih setia-Mu | How great is Your mercy
Agung, dahsyat karya-Mu | How great (exalted?) and powerful are Your works
Takkan pernah kulupakan | I will never forget
Bah'wa hidupku dicipta untukMu | That my life was created for You

Chorus:
Dan kasih-Mu melekat di batinku | And your love clings to my inmost being
Damai di jiwaku | Peace in my heart
Dan kuhidup hanya 'tuk menyembah-Mu | And I live only to worship You
Allah yang hidup | The living God

Kudus, Suci nama-Mu | How holy and pure is Your name
Mulia dan dalam kasih-Mu | How noble and deep is Your love
Takkan pernah kulupakan | I will never forget
Bah'wa hidupku dicipta untukMu | That my life was created for You

P/s He starts the song with the chorus.
PP/S I always assumed "kasih setia" is "faithful love". Apparently it actually means mercy!
PPP/S Okay. I should allow for some dialect differences between Indonesian (which this song is written in) and Malay (that we learn in Malaysia). And the fact that I'm not very fluent. And also, Malaysia has no theological lexicon in Malay because it's somewhat banned here, so they rely on Indonesian theologians/translations.
