Izunna Okafor dere abụ a

Isi ụtọ a na-anụ na ntị
Mgbochi ọrịa a kpụ n'ọnụ
Okwu nkà e ji n'aka nri
Mana ha niile bụ n'elu ọnụ

A kpọrọ ya ọchịchị onye kwuo uche ya
Mmadụ ole n'ime anyị kwugoro uche ha
Ebe e jigoro aka ike kpuchie apịa ọnụ
Onye kwuo nke tọrọ ya, a tụwaa ya ọnụ

Kedụ maka ụmụ egbe ha kwògoro ọdụ 
Ka onye ọbụla ghara ifego ogo nke karịrị ha
Dịka a ga a ga-asị na ha bụ ihe e debere n'ọrụ
Onye zọọ ọnọdụ ruru ya, e nye ya iche nke karịrị ya.

Ala Naịjiria bụ akpa aja
Ọchịchị onye kwuo uche ya na-atọ aja aja
Onye loo ya bụ akpụ aja n'ike 
Ndị ndu ehoo ya ka ero n'ike

Oke ji na àbàla ọ na-azọ ihu ọba
Ọ na-abụ akpa ezughị ezè dibia
Ofeke anyarakwuo atọ
Ndị mbụ na oke udele ọ na-emekọ ihe mmụọ

Mmọnwụ ọbụla ma obom ruuru ya

Ndị ala anyị chọrọ ezi ọchịchị
Ebe onye ọbụla ga-enwe ọnụ okwu
Ntụnye ndị nzè ka e ji emerụ okwu
Egbe bere ugo bere ọha obodo amagbuo onwe ya
