Continuing on with translations from Hijjaz’s wonderful Pelita Hidup album, here is the next in the series, Kala Subuh:

Hijjaz – Kala Subuh

Kala subuh telah bersinar
Daku datang untuk berdoa
Kala sang suria bersinar memancar
Daku datang sujud dan memuja

When dawn has begun to gleam
I come to supplicate
When the sun is pouring out its radiance
I come to worship and prostrate

Hidupku pasrah kepada Mu
Ibadahku hanya untuk Mu
Ku sebut nama Mu Allahhu Akbar

My life is surrendered to You
My worship for You alone
I utter your name, Allahu Akbar

Ku harap pada Mu semata
Sebelum jasad menjadi tanah
Hapuskan segala dosa
Disengaja atau tiada

I hope from You alone
Before my body has become earth
Wipe away all my sins
Whether intentional or not

Tuhanku ku pohon restu Mu
Perjuanganku hanya untuk Mu
Kusebut nama Mu Allahhu Akbar

My God, I ask Your blessing
My striving only for You
I utter your name, Allahu Akbar

Ku harap hidayah dari Mu
Dalam menempuh jalan hidupku
Cintaku hanya untuk Mu
Kebahagiaan yang ku harapkan

I hope for guidance from You
As I go down the path of my life
My love is only for You
Goodness that I hope for
