    At chʼina tenamit Belen

    Rikʼin tuqtuukilal

    1. At chʼina tenamit Belen,

    Chʼanchʼo chik nakatqil;

    Chiru choxa saʼ laa wara

    Chahim nakateʼril.

    Saqen bʼan nakʼutun

    Saʼ laa qʼojyin ruhil bʼe.

    Li tzʼaqal yaal ut chaabʼilal

    Chiru qʼojyin taakʼe.

    2. Li Kristo aawikʼin xyoʼla,

    Ut naq chʼanchʼo taqʼa,

    Nakateʼril saʼ komonil

    Li anjel saʼ choxa.

    Laaʼex chahim re¬ eqʼla,

    Chebʼicha resil chi yaal—

    Loqʼal choqʼ re li Dios teekʼe;

    Re winq, tuqtuukilal.

    3. Chʼanchʼo chʼanchʼo nakʼeeman qe

    Li nimajwal maatan;

    Joʼkan lix chʼool li winq naxkʼul

    Lix choxahil uxtaan.

    Us ta timil xyaabʼ xkux

    Saʼ li ruchichʼochʼ aʼin,

    Wi wan ani taakʼuluq re,

    Taaʼok li Dios rikʼin.
