Original Lyrics in Kirundi

Burundi bwacu, bwâra iranga,
Nk’ikete ry’intore, ku muhero w’isi,
Warapfunywe ntiharigwa namba,
Intibagirwa kô, kô mu mashinga,
Ishengero ry’intore, ritazira umwami.

Abagabo n’abagore b’i Burundi,
Ibirindirira kô n’abagabo b’intôre,
Barazîra ntôre nk’ikete ry’intore,
Ntibatinya kô ishingiro,
Nk’ubwenge bw’intore, nk’ubugabo, nk’urukundo.
