The Children of the Sun and Moon

5:1
Ing minúnang Kapampangan,
I Múnag Sumálâ táng nuan,
Pangáné ning Aldo málam,
Ila ning Indû táng Tíbûan.

The first Kapampángan,
Was the Dawn ~ the goddess Múnag Sumálâ,
First born of our sacred Sun,
And our beloved Earth Mother.

5:2
O malagûng núnûng málam,
Mulâng sálâ ning Aldong nuan,
Misupling anting ubíngan,
Kng pabakle ning Aslagan.

O beautiful ancestral goddess,
First light of the blessed Sun,
Born to us as a serpent,

Across the horizon of the rising sun.

5:3
Malagû ya at matúlâ,
Ing núnûng Abak a kaduâ,
Supling ning Aldo masálâ,
Kng panyíró na pang bagiâ.

Young and cheerful,
That was our Beloved Morning ~ Ábak,
Second daughter of our luminous Sun,
As it ascends the earth further from the ground.

5:4
Ing katlu namang supling na,
Kng kasikatsikatan na,
Ugtung Aldo ginung mála,
Lakandánup ing áus da.

The third daughter was born,
When the son was at its hottest and brightest,

Our fierce lady Noon ~ Ugtung Aldo,
God of Hunger ~ Lakandánup, is her god name.

5:5
Ulî ning migsalílung la,
Pálî ning Sukû mátas na,
Núnûng Ugtu péngan na na,
Rening sablâng alíno ta.

Since all creatures hid under the shade,
When the Ápûng Sukû was at his hottest and brightest,

Our ancestress Noon had nothing to eat,
Except all our shadows.

5:6
Kabungsûan ning Sukû ta,
Iniang umé néng paináua,
Laláking pelayáuan na,
Gatpanápun ing lagiû na.

The youngest Ápûng Sukû’s offspring,
Was born as he was about to rest,
His only son and prince,
Gatpanápun ~ god of rest and recreation.

5:7
Kng dané namang Albugan,
Sísilim misupling néman,
Kaumanggîng dalágang málam,
Pangáne ning núnûng Búlan.

On the Western realm where the Sun sets,
Sísilim ~ the Twilight, was born,
Fair maiden with cinnamon skin,
First born of our Lord Moon. 

5:8
Sísilim mabanglung málam,
Ginung Aldo kayang ulîan,
Bingkayû nang pagdulápan,
Ding kuliglig pagdalitan.

Sísilim was sweet and fragrant,
She became the favourite of our Lord Sun,
Who sought her for her sweet lullabies,
Accompanied by the cries of the cicadas.

5:9
Kabungsûan ning Búlan ta,
Kapitángan ing aus da,
Dalumdum bábalut kaya,
Kng tudtud támung mauága.

The youngest of Lord Moon’s offspring,
Kapitángan was her name,
Darkness was her abode,
In the deepest slumber of man.
