Men may come and go;

The Kuki will come and go.

Birds may sing and dance;

           

            The Kuki will sing and dance. 

            Flowers have its colors.

            The Kuki has its color;

            Bees suck and knit the honey comb;


The Kuki will re-organize its broken home.

The Sun shines and gives light;

The Kuki shines and gives light.

The star twinkles;

 

            The Kuki twinkles
            Ice changes into water;

            The Kuki changes not.

            Weather may change;

 

The Kuki changes not.
Reptiles change their colors;

But the Kuki does not change.

Flower blooms and fades;
But the Kuki stands forever.

 

            People hated Jesus of Nazareth;

            People hated Kuki;

            Jesus was crucified by His relatives, the Jews;

            The Kuki was crucified by his relatives.

 

Jesus was resurrected;

The Kuki was resurrected.

Jesus won the battlefield; 

The Kuki will win the battlefield soon.
