Something similar has beendone by the missionary scholar, Bernard Vroklage in the period January-July 1937 when he did his fieldwork in the Belu region of West Timor.
The picture above has been taken from volume II:78-79 and is part of a burial ceremony for a raja:
The honoured and allmighty God
called and summoned
the Raja, our Ruler.
Thou who created and made him
closed his eyes and silenced his mouth.
We now want to show the way
his soul must go,
our Lord and Ruler
the soul of the Raja,
she may go the way that runs along
Kuda Hali and Ai Knoru
and further along
Lakirin and Au Feto,
to Nokar Inan and Taha Dekor .. (etc.)
According to Vroklage the purpose of this and followign songs is to speed the soul to leave the region, because it is a danger for the living people.
