NDŨRĨ GUOYA WENDO

Ndũrĩ guoya wendo, marĩ  ndundu nĩ makĩũraga?

ũkia ici karũndo, ngeithi  kũna itiũragaga;

Nĩtũwohe witũ makundo, wendo tũwĩtĩre iruga:

Na ngũĩ nĩngũmatha indo; mũrata na nditi nĩũkũnduga wega?

Ti mũrũrũ ta macatha, wendo ngogoyo ndũgĩkunde  mwarĩ ngatha!

Matirĩ rũagatha, amũkĩra mumunyo mata ti rũamba, hatha;

Wendo ndũmemagio, mwago wa ngoro ndũthahagio!

Turama thinĩkĩrĩrie mũramba, guũria kĩga kĩgiritithie gĩcamba,

Kirĩrĩria tiga kwanganga, horera  tuba ũnore banga,

Tiga gũcayacaya; ngwati na rũng’ũthũ nĩ mũrĩo no ikaya .

Ndũrĩ guoya wendo; rũa mũthĩ na ndĩrĩ rũtithiraga  rwendo,

Gĩticokagio gĩtagurarĩtie kĩbindo,gwata rũhĩa thathaiye rũnyondo.

Tiga kũũgatha mwatũ, ca! ca! ca!reke gĩcarĩkie matatũ,

Tiga gũbogothera matũ; nguma njoya ũũ amu ũyu  nĩmũritũ!

Ndekandekia mbaru, wũi! Mwendwa haha hariku owega nĩ haruru

Thengathengia maru, thinũria  hangire  nĩkĩng’aru!

Ndũrĩ guoya wendo, ndũkĩnyamure tũikaranie.

Ndũrĩ kĩnyiria wendo, ndũgĩtumĩrie ũyũ twĩhĩtithie.
