1 Goofta jalatti ni baqannaa da’oo keenyaa rakkinatti
Badisa iraa inni nu eegaa da’oo keenyaa rakkinatti.

Hirkoo keenyaa yeroo gidiraa yeroo aduu gaddiisa keenyaa

2 Halkani fi guyyaa nuu eega da’oo keenyaa rakkinatii
Gaddaa fi dhiphinaa nuraa fudha da’oo keenya rakkinatii. [Buufata]

3 Da’oo guddaan yoo nu qabee da’oo keenyaa rakkinnitii
Waaqaa birratti ni baqannaa da’oo keenyaa rakkinati. [Buufata]

4 Da’oo keenyaa gooftaan keenyaa da’oo keenya rakkinati
Gargaarsaa keenyaa nuuf ta’a da’oo keenyaa rakkinatii. [Buufata]
