Burorina, kind of heart and open of hand,
whose grace and goodness endure, I tell of your glory.
Giver of gifts, taker of vows and offerings,
you keep your promises, O true and trusty goddess,
you answer the prayers of those who call, you hear the cries
of the faithful. Long ago were you well honored,
cherished and revered, long ago your might was known,
your name carved into stone; today the stone
is weathered, your name long lost to time, yet still
the sea speaks in your voice, the city holds your spirit
and your strength, still your care and constancy abide.
Burorina, bountiful goddess, accept my praise.
