"Ka Thong" da Magdalene Laloo


Na ri ki rngai ka wan pasiaw,

Ïa mynsiem ka khring ban jop thiaw.

Jingiwbih ki sang ban sam lyngba,

Jingsawa ki kshaid ba sngewphylla.

Ka ud ka kyang ka wan paw shynna

Da ki khana ha ka por nylla.


Ka khring ïa ka mynsiem

Ba ïa ka ban buddien,

Ïa takma ksiar haba kut ban shem,

Ban ïeng hi triang da jingkyrmen.

Da ryntieh jingieid ki khnam jingshlur,

Ha madan thma shakhmat ban tur.


La snam ka jaw, jingmong ka sat,

Jingeh ki tynrah, mynsiem nangjwat,

Ha kliar u lum Lama ban kaweh,

Pat ïoh jingjop, khlem pat sangeh.

Khlem jingrem haba kut ban iohi jingshai,

Kan wan tyngshaiñ na ri ki rngai.
