Ko Soso Tham, Myllung Ka Ri! da i Bawanshwa Syiemlieh


Ko Soso Tham, Myllung ka Ri!


Shano? Shaei? Ngan shem shuh kum phi,

Ko Soso Tham baieid, Myllung ka Ri Khasi!

Ka Nam jong phi kan sah shirta,

ha ngi u Khun Khasi Khara.


U Snem Khatphra spah Hynñiewphew Lai,

Sha pyrthei phi wan ban tbeh jingshai;

Phi la long u païa shlem ka Jaidbynriew

Lyngba ka thoh ka tar, iangi phi pyneh rngiew.


Ha ka ri u Hynñiewtrep Hynñiewskum

Shaphang ka Ri hapoh ba dum;

Phi lap ïa ki symboh jingpyrkhat,

Ba mih na rngai ki thwei ummat.


Kyndit h'u Snem Khadkhyndai Sawphew,

Jngai phi lah leit noh nangne na sla khyndew;

kum u Syiem hi phi la long ko Soso Tham,

Im ka kyrteng sah ka nam.


- Bawanshwa Syiemlieh
