መልአከ አርያም መምህር ሰባኬ ሐዲስ ወንጌል፣

ትፍታህ ማዕሰረ ዚአከ ማርያም ድንግል፣

እስመ ውስተ እዴከ በትር ዘከተማሁ መስቀል፡፡

 

Mälʾäkä ʾaryam teacher who preaches the New Testament / Gospels

Let the Virgin Mary liberate you from your chains

Because you are holding a stick with a cross at the top.

 

Since one carrying the cross sticks to the task, Mälʾäkä ʾaryam is holding a Mäqwuamiya, a symbol of the cross, in order to preach the gospels. The BaläQəne is wishing that the Virgin Mary helps him in being eloquent in his speech.
