1 Ani kella banama beeka kan warqeen ijaaramee
Isa keessaa ifinni hindhufa nu hundumaaf kan ibsu.

Ya mo’aa ayyaana waaqa inni banamadha anaf
Anaf anaf naf banama dha.

2 Banamaadha hundumaaf dubbi Waaq kan eeganiif
Soreessa fi deegaaf sanyi nama hundumaaf. [Buufata]

3 Eega amma dafiii dhaqii kellaan utuu hin cufamin
Gonfoo ulfina fudhadhu fayyisaan kan siif kennu. [Buufata]

4 Guyya laga du’aa ceene ba’aan keenya hin salphata
Yaaddo keenya ni obbaaffaanna mooti keenyaf faarffanna. [Buufata]
