    Aʼ li chaabʼil aatin chiqaye

    Rikʼin anchalil chʼoolej

    1. Aʼ li chaabʼil aatin chiqaye,

    Chi tiik ut rikʼin tuulanil.

    Saʼ ochoch joʼ ajwiʼ saʼ li bʼe,

    Rajlal chiqaye li chaabʼil.

    Tixkʼe re li ani ra li raam

    Saqen li nachal saʼ choxa,

    Ut bʼar wiʼ li choql kaw naxram,

    Tixkʼe chi kʼutunk toj taqʼa.

    [Chorus]

    Li qaatin li chaabʼil junelik kʼoxlanbʼil;

    Tixkʼut jun saqen chi rajlal.

    Aʼ li chaabʼil aatin chiqaye,

    Aʼan sahil bʼich re qachʼool.

    2. Joʼ rilbʼal chi saqewk li kutan,

    Joʼkan naxjekʼi lix sahil;

    Joʼ chanru li roq haʼ nabʼichan,

    Joʼkan xchaabʼilal rabʼinkil.

    Qʼunaq li aatin li yeebʼil,

    Chiqil qibʼ rikʼin chaabʼilal,

    Li qaam saʼ tzʼaqal junajil

    Rahok taareekʼa saʼ xyaalal.

    [Chorus]

    Li qaatin li chaabʼil junelik kʼoxlanbʼil;

    Tixkʼut jun saqen chi rajlal.

    Aʼ li chaabʼil aatin chiqaye,

    Aʼan sahil bʼich re qachʼool.
