Li iyaj naqaw rajlal

Lyrics

  1. 1. Li iyaj naqaw rajlal,
    Riyajil xnaʼlebʼ qachʼool.
    Jekʼinbʼil chiru taqʼa,
    Taqlanbʼil chiru li tzuul.
    Wan nanaq saʼ chaabʼil chʼochʼ
    Ut nachal li habʼ saʼ xbʼeen.
    Wan nanaq saʼ kawil pek;
    Nachaqik lix xeʼ aran.
  2. 2. Wan saʼ najtil tzuul xjunes
    Li namoq ut naniman;
    Wan tzʼeqbʼil rubʼel oqej,
    Yeqʼinbʼil nawan aran.
    Wan iyaj li sachenaq,
    Maaʼani nakʼoxlank re.
    Wan li kʼoxlanbʼil rajlal
    Saʼ lix tij li xʼawok re.
  3. 3. Wan iyaj inkʼaʼ namoq,
    Naqʼeloʼ, maakʼaʼ xyuʼam.
    Wan li toj yoo chi nimank
    Naq laj awinel ak xkam.
    Jun qaatin xsahil naxkʼe,
    Ut li jun, namoq xrahil,
    Saʼ qabʼaanuhom rajlal,
    Li yuʼam ut kamk awbʼil.
  4. 4. At aj nawom re qachʼool,
    Saʼ li awk chatwanq qikʼin.
    Laa anjel cheʼril li chʼochʼ
    Bʼar awbʼil iyaj arin,
    Toj reetal naq taaqʼanoʼq,
    Ut taaruuchini tzʼaqal
    Li yuʼam chi junelik,
    Li awbʼil rikʼin rahilal.
