 Hochlogh no' yIquvmoH
  All times honor your ancestors. (KGT)


 tagha' tIq Hoch botlh
    Hochlogh Dat joqtaHjaj
  And finally Tiq, the heart and center of all things,
    May it forever beat, anywhere. (PB)

Hear now,
   All of you here
   Why we go to Sto-vo-kor
And greet our Kahless there,
   To join him in battle
   For eternity
To join him in battle
   Join him in battle
   For eternity
We meet our Kahless there,
   To join him for eternity
   For eternity.  (PB)
(KGT 178):  Similarly, when -logh is attached to Hoch (all), the resulting word, Hochlogh (all times), is used in the same way as reH (always), as in Hochlogh no' yIquvmoH (All times honor your ancestors...); compare reH no' yIquvmoH (Always honor your ancestors).

Interestingly, {Hochlogh} was used instead of {reH} in the paq'batlh to translate the idea of "forever".
