1. Uhoro wa gukena
Niuukite guku gwitu:
Uhoro mwega ni uyu
Wa Muhonokia witu.

2.  Uhoro niuukite
Gutwira ithuothe
Uria ohanagira
Na uria twendetwo niwe.

3.  Na wendo ni munene
Wa Jesu Muteithania:
Nioimire Iguru
Ni gutuiguira tha.

4.  Niaatukuiriire tene
Atuike igongona,
Na mehia maitu mothe
Hindi io agitwara.

5.  Nituhunjie thi yothe
Uhoro wa Mwathani.
Tukonie andu othe
Wendani wa Mukuuri.

6.  Kinya kugathwo gwake
Gukainwo o ku na ku,
Na mithiriga yothe
Ni igatiga waganu.
