R/ Nyagasani, nshyize ubugingo bwanjye mu maboko yawe.

Mbera urutare rukomeye,

Nyobora, undandate ubigiriye kubahiriza izina ryawe.

Nshyize ubugingo bwanjye mu maboko yawe,
ni wowe uncungura, Uhoraho, Mana nyir’ukuri.
Nzabyina nishimira cyane ubudahemuka bwawe,

Uruhanga rwawe nirumurikire umugaragu wawe,
maze unkize ugiriye impuhwe zawe.
Mbega ukuntu ibyiza wageneye abagutinya ari byinshi !
Ubiha abo ubereye ubuhungiro bose,
kandi ukabibagwizaho rubanda rwose rubyirebera.
