The people at the early days
Fighting the foreign enemies
Blood spills never they are ceased
Until the death comes and they are still alive

The people in time is practicing Islam
Fighting in the field with no hiding arm
Even the bitter bullets still sweet like sugar
The tears run telling never in denial

The people never lost in the language
Until the fall of the power of the world
The rise of the children of people
The power of the country will get back once more!

Neldy Jolo 

Bangsa sin awal yadtu
Imatu ha satru dayuh
Dugu naasag wa’ da nagamparu
Sambil sadja liahad masi masambu

Bangsa sin jaman nagaAgama Islam
Nagbunu’ ha pantayan wa’ kimupal
Misan pait lagtang punglu biya’ da sukal
Anud luha himabal wa’ nagmasukkal

Bangsa wa’ nalawa halaum bahasa
Timu’gum sadja in kawasa dunya
Pagsilak sin anak bangsa 
Kawasa sin hula’ magbalik da

The English version above is taken from the poem written in Sinug
Center Point, Sandakan, Sabah
Awal Muharram 1, 1430
