Lyrics

  1. 1. Sa li kʼanjel, at inQaawaʼ—
    Tijok, bʼichank saʼ laa kʼabʼaʼ,
    Chiru kutan yehok aatin,
    Ut aawesil chiru qʼojyin.
  2. 2. Sa li kutan re hilobʼaal.
    Maajun chʼaʼaj taawanq saʼ inchʼool.
    Jun chaabʼil bʼich saʼ waam chiwanq,
    Joʼ sahil wajbʼ chiʼabʼimanq.
  3. 3. Tinloqʼoni lin Kolonel,
    Ut li raatin, ut lix kʼanjel.
    Laa wusilal, kʼaʼjoʼ xsahil,
    Ut laa naʼlebʼ qʼaxal chaabʼil.
  4. 4. Kʼaʼjoʼ wiʼchik naq tinnima
    Laa wankilal toj saʼ choxa,
    Naq saʼ xnaʼaj li sahilal
    Tinwil aran laa wilobʼaal.
  5. 5. Li maak kiwan saʼ waam junxil
    Chirix aʼan taasachq xwankil.
    Joʼwiʼ lin majelal kiwan;
    Maakʼaʼaq xwankil laj tza aran.
  6. 6. Joʼ kʼihal inkʼaʼ xintaw taqʼa,
    Tinwil, tinnaw saʼ li choxa,
    Ut chixjunil li wankilal
    Taaʼoksimanq saʼ chaabʼilal.
