Oh, ancestors, give me the strength

To put my torn self on the mend.

Oh let me inherit

All your will and your wit.

So I can make you proud.

Oh let me be endowed

With the wisdom you found.

Let me turn things around.

Oh let me inherit

All your will and your wit.

So I can make you proud.

Oh let me be endowed

With the wisdom you found.

Let me turn things around.

Don't let me forget where I came from.

Oh let me inherit

All your will and your wit.

Let me turn things around.
