Fear meets us in roaring thunders and crashing waves,
To this I forbid us to succumb like slaves.
If we can, we must,
Preparation and cooperation will dissolve the bad to dust.
Prayers I send to everybody,
Especially to those who are affected badly.
In this time, there should be no pinpointing,
Only helping one another that is unceasing.
Nawa’y mabalutan ang lahat ng mga Pilipino ng pagmamahal ng Ama sa pagdating ng bagyong Ruby.
