    Default What is the language and also help to identify the song

    Hi all, I'm new here and it's my first post

    A long time ago , approximately in 2007 I got the song, file was unnamed (just an mp3 file). I fell in love in that song and music.
    Firstly I thought the language was Spanish or some of Balkanian one (Albanian, Romanian, etc...) , but I've been still not sure in the language till today (today a man told me it's Finnish).

    I've posted pieces of the song here:
    beginning of the song (0-30 seconds): https://www.watzatsong.com/en/name-t...ne/569485.html
    couplet of the song (~30-60 seconds): https://www.watzatsong.com/en/name-t...ne/570753.html

    There a user "morback" told me it's Finnish and provided to me fragments from the song in Finnish.
    He also suggested me to find valoilmie from allthelyrics.com, and that's why I'm here


    Sincerely.

    This song fragment appears to be a prayer or religious song which has been translated to Finnish from some other language by a non-native speaker. There are some grammar errors, and the singer has foreign accent.

    This kind of songs are sometimes heard in religious fringe-group gatherings (Jehovah's Witnesses, etc.), where some "famous foreign preacher" is visiting.

    Off-hand transcription would be something like:

    Herrani, miksen kuule sinun ääntäsi?
    Miksi tapahtuu niin että ympärilläni vain hätä?
    Harrani, miksi jätit mua hölmöksi?
    Mikset auta kun näet että mulla jää vaan pime...

    Direct translation would be something like:

    My Lord, why I can't hear your voice?
    Why it happens that around me (there is) only trouble?
    My Lord, why did you left of me (to be) stupid?
    Why don't you help when you see that of me is left with only dark...


    Proper Finnish version would be:

    Herrani, miksi en kuule sinun ääntäsi?
    Miksi tapahtuu niin, että ympärilläni on vain hätää?
    Harrani, miksi jätit minut hölmöksi?
    Miksi et auta kun näet, että minulle jää vaan pime...

    Proper English translation would be:

    My Lord, why I can't hear your voice?
    Why it happens that there is only trouble around me?
    My Lord, why did you left me to be unwise?
    Why don't you help when you see that I am left only with dark...
