U Kiang Nangbah
"U KHON KA WAIT KA STIEH
U KHON DAP CHYNRANG"
Da u mot sahnam da pynïein ha
madan-madiah kmai Blai
Na khlieh riat ka Kiang, U peit katwon wa
Khlem artatien, katni chityllup pyrthai datip
Ïei chlur, Wei Maya ri, da sai mi ki buit,
Da pynioo mi katwa ïe
Im i pyrtuid, sah i nam
Da pynsabut mi da ki kyntien, wa da ki kam
Woh Kiang Nangbah ia me u kynmoo
Kam u Khon ka wait-ka stieh,
U khon dap chynrang
Nuksa wa bha, ia ka pateiñ me da pynioo
Ha ka Ri ïong i dahi,
Umkhmat wom hoi u tlor u joo.
