    Laaʼat lin saqen

    Rikʼin kawil chʼoolej

    1. Laaʼat lin saqen; kʼaʼru tinxuwa?

    Chi qʼeq, chi kutan nikinaatenqʼa.

    Kasach chaq chinbʼeen li maak ut rahilal,

    Ut xbʼaan laa Musiqʼ naq ninnaw chi tzʼaqal.

    [Chorus]

    Laaʼat lin saqen; Laaʼat li bʼe, ut li yaal.

    Chi qʼeq, chi kutan, Lin bʼe taakʼam rajlal.

    2. Laaʼat lin saqen; naq choql naramok,

    Tzʼaqal li paabʼaal taqeʼq naʼilok

    Wan wiʼ li Jesus, chi nim xloqʼalil.

    Maamin chi joʼkan li qʼojyin chik tinwil.

    [Chorus]

    Laaʼat lin saqen; Laaʼat li bʼe, ut li yaal.

    Chi qʼeq, chi kutan, Lin bʼe taakʼam rajlal.

    3. Laaʼat lin saqen, ut lin tenqʼankil.

    Rajlal nintenqʼaak naq ninbʼeek saʼ paabʼaal.

    [Chorus]

    Laaʼat lin saqen; Laaʼat li bʼe, ut li yaal.

    Chi qʼeq, chi kutan, Lin bʼe taakʼam rajlal.

    4. Laaʼat lin saqen; anchal inpaabʼaal;

    [Chorus]

    Laaʼat lin saqen; Laaʼat li bʼe, ut li yaal.

    Chi qʼeq, chi kutan, Lin bʼe taakʼam rajlal.
