Original lyrics

Zu zara

Euri berria bezala, zara zu
uda berriakin jetsia
umetxoaren irria
zara zuta horrela agurtzen zaitut
 
Nere itxaropen bizia, zara zu
pago sastraiakin ernea
Erbi gaztea bezala, zara zu
ta horrela agurtzen zaitut
 
Zu zara erreka garbian ura
Zu zara ni estaliko nauan lurra
Zu zara etxe barrenean sua
Zu zara nerea izateko sortua
 
Nere gauan olerkia ta soinu
amets eroaren jabea
Ifar izarra bidean
zara zu ta horrela agurtzen zaitut
 
Zu zara erreka garbian ura
Zu zara ni estaliko nauan lurra
Zu zara etxe barrenean sua
Zu zara nerea izateko sortua

Translation

You Are

You are like new rain
Falling with the new summer
You are the little child's smile
and that is how I greet1 you
 
You are my living hope
Sprouting with beech roots
You are like a young hare
and that is how I greet you
 
You are clean water in a stream
You are the earth that will bury me
You are the fire in the house
You are created to be mine
 
You are poetry and song in my night
The master of a wild dream
The North Star on its way
and that is how I greet you
 
You are clean water in a stream
You are the earth that will bury me
You are the fire in the house
You are created to be mine
