最後ê hioh腳

~馬偕tī觀音山頂(1900遺囑)~

我規粒心所疼痛ê台灣a!
我ê青春攏總獻hō͘你。
我規粒心所疼痛ê台灣a!
我一生ê歡喜攏tī chia。
我tī雲霧ê中間看尖山tú天,
pit作無底深坑ê山崁,
thàng去到波浪無停ê外海,
我意愛tī chia永遠瞻望。
我心bē-tàng割離ê台灣a!
我一生快樂tī chia,
ǹg望我人生ê soah尾站,
會聽著海湧拍岸ê水聲,
tī竹林搖hàiⁿ ê翠影下底,
chhōe著我最後ê hioh腳。

[From Far Formosa]:
“Far Formosa is dear to my heart. On that island the best of my years have been spent. There the interest of my life has been centered. I love to look up to its lofty peaks, down into its yawning chasm, and away o͘t on its surging sea. I love its dark-skinned people---Chinese, pepohoan, and savage---among whom I have gone these twenty-three years, I would gladly, a thousand times over, give up my life. Before what I now write has been read I will have set my face once more westward toward the far East, and by God’s good hand will have reached again my beloved Formosan home beyond the Pacific Sea. There I hope to spend what remains of my life, and when my day of service is over I should like to find a resting-place within sound of its surf and under the shade of its waving bamboo.”
