When the song is started, it sounds like, "Wo deh nay".

The syllabic accent may change. An instance is with the word, "nudahonga", which is normally spoken, "nudáhonga". When sung, it may change to, "núdahónga" or "nudáhongá.

Great points by all!

When you follow the will of IT that created you, understanding that your purpose is not for you...but for IT and all that IT has created, there can be no wrong except failure to be obedient. Only then do we jeopardize the gifts we are given.

Its not the final destination that defines us, rather the journey taken!
