Regine Velasquez’s – Ikaw

This is a wonderful Filipino song (OPM) by world class singer Regine Velasquez. It is so popular in the Philippines that it is often performed in weddings there. Simply magnificent, even if you don't understand the words!

I got the translation from HERE

Ikaw ang bigay ng Maykapal
Tugon sa aking dasal
Upang sa lahat ng panahon
Bawat pagkakataon
Ang ibigin ko'y ikaw

You are God’s gift to me
His answer to my prayers
That, each moment, forevermore
You’d be the one that I will love

Ikaw ang tanglaw sa 'king mundo
Kabiyak nitong puso ko
Wala ni kahati mang saglit
Na sa iyo'y may papalit
Ngayo't kailanma'y ikaw

You are the light of my life (could also be, world, or soul)
Who, alone, shares my heart completely
Today and forevermore

Ang lahat ng aking galaw
Ang sanhi ay ikaw

That all that I am (and could be)
It is because of you

Kung may bukas mang tinatanaw
Dahil may isang ikaw
Kulang ang magpakailan man
Upang bawat sandali ay…
Upang muli't muli ay…
Ang mahalin ay ikaw

If, there’s a future that I can (now) see
It is because of you
“Forevermore” would not be enough
For me, to love you
Each moment, endlessly
