    Rikʼin sahil chʼoolejil

    Saʼ najtil tenamit keʼchal

    Laj paabʼanel najter tzʼaqal.

    Keʼbʼeek chiru naabʼal kutan

    Ut junelik nekeʼbʼichan:

    Wankebʼ chiru, wankebʼ chirix,

    Wankebʼ li saaj, wankebʼ li tiix,

    Chi sa nokobʼeek chiru li bʼe—

    Saʼ xtenamit Sion xik qe.

    Jun li descant li naru xyaabʼasinkil
    Wan chiru, chirix, li saaj ut tiix,
    Chi sa toobʼeeq, saʼ xtenamit Sion xik qe.
