The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God,
the Father almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried;
he descended into hell;
on the third day he rose again from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty;
from there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.
Amen.

Lord Jesus, by your cross and resurrection you set us free, you are the Savior of the world. As we profess our faith in you by reciting the Apostle’s Creed, help redeem the world from the corona virus. Thank you Lord Jesus.

The Hail Holy Queen Prayer


Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of mercy, Hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope.To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears.Turn then, most gracious Advocate, Thine eyes of mercy toward us,And after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus,O Clement O Loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.That we may become worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray

O God whose only begotten Son Has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life. Grant that we beseech Thee, while meditating upon these mysteries In the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary We may both imitate what they contain and obtain What they promise, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Past Tense in Nkwen Language

The Nkwen Language makes a distinction of three main tenses, the Present the Past and the Future Tenses. The past and the future tenses are subdivided into three forms each. The differences between these tenses in some cases are shown by different tense markers which come before the verb or simply tone melody on verbs and nouns.

TABLE 1: TENSE MARKERS

Today past P1tomorrow past P2Remote Past P3
O/tɛ̌/ghǝ̌ + verb kǝ̀
+ verb
O/lyǝ
+ verb
Today Future F1Tomorrow Future F2Remote Future F3

+ verb
bǝlya
+ verb
bǝlyǝ + verb

THE PAST TENSE

THE TODAY PAST TENSE (P1)                

    This tense marks actions or situations which took place earlier than the moment of speaking and may be translated into English as the Present Perfect Tense. There are two tense markers, (tɛ̌ and ghǝ̌) that stress the time of action. In some cases there are tonal differences on verbs and nouns (without any marker), with the low tone dominating. E.g.

  1. Talà kwùrә ǹnà.

Talà eaten meat  (word for word translation) 

Tala has eaten meat.  (free translation)

2. Ngәlà cù’u àkù’u   

Ngәla pounded achu.  

Ngǝla has pounded achu.

NB: There is no tense marker in the above examples but low tone dominating)

3. Ətàa tɛ̌ njyǝ.

Father p1 eaten

Father has eaten.

4.Talà tɛ̌ ǹtswì’ì nǝbyɛ̌.

Tala p1 fished fish          

Tala has just done fishing.

5. Ngәlͻ ghǝ ntͻŋә àzu’u.   

Ngәlͻ p1 dug yam       

Ngәlͻ has dug a yam. (some hours back)

6. Talà ghǝ̌ bà’à mәlù’ù.

Tala p1 tapped wine       

Tala has tapped wine. (some hours ago)

THE YESTERDAY PAST TENSE (P2)

    The yesterday past tense is sequentially lexicalized by a marker ‘kә̀’.  This tense marks actions which took place not only yesterday but as far back as last year. E.g.

-Talà kә̀ kwurә nna әzͻ̌.

Tala p2  eat meat  yesterday.

Tala ate meat yesterday.

-Talà kǝ̀ ba’a mәlù’u ŋghà yi.

Tala p2 tapped wine last week.    

Tala tapped wine last  week.

-Talà kә̀ tswì’i nә̀byε ngù’u yi.

Tala p2 fished fish year last   

Tala did fishing last year

-Ngәlà kә̀ cù’u akù’u njwε yi.

Ngәla p2 pounded achu’u day before yesterday.

Ngәla pounded achu day before yesterday.

THE REMOTE PAST TENSE (P3)

This tense marks events which took place in the distant past or at a period when the definiteness of the time is not of great consequence at the moment of speaking. It is lexicalized by a marker ‘lyә’ or only by a tone melody. E.g. 

  1. Tala lyә kwurә nnà ŋgù’u tsә. 

Talà p3  ate meat year certain.

Tala ate meat a certain year.

   Or

Talǎ kwurә ǹnǎ ŋgù’u tsә̌.

Tala ate meat year certain. Tala ate meat a certain year.

2.Ngәlͻ lyә tͻŋә әdzu’u ŋgù’u tsә̌.   

Ngәlͻ p3 dug yams year certain

Ngәlͻ dug yams a certain year.

  Or

Ngәlͻ̌ tͻŋә әdzu’u ŋgù’u tsә̌.   

Ŋ̀gәlͻ dug yams year certain

Ngәlͻ dug yams a certain year.
