Verse 1:

Katau banda, awektoi nguno
Ature tugul, amu kiyayan Jesu
Ngo mi nyalildo anan ngo mi boiboyet

Chorus:

Mami kiy ne abwati, eng olin bo let
Dhahabu ak feda, ko mami kerchinet
Atinye Jesu nguno, atinye boiboyet

Verse 2:

Kachoyo atebe, ochei koboryo
KOtobto ben boryet, osisien ogas
Duket nebo Jesu, ko bou kipsengwet

(Chorus)

Verse 3:

Kiateben sobondonyu, imiano nguno?
Betutab kirwaget, ko kagorigu
Bouget che tiliilen, ak Jesu kityo

(Chorus)

Verse 4:

Ka korir tarumbeta, nebo boriet
Si ko nyo Jesu, ak rotwet ne kesei
Kesetab tamirmiriret, ko bunu kipsengwet

(Chorus)

(Sung in Kalenjin)
Chorus:
Ategisin o, ategisin Jehova (I salute you Lord)
Ategisin, Ategisin Jehova (I salute you Jehovah)x2

Ategisin inye inyegei, (I salute you alone )
ne kiisaruon eng lusenyu (You who saved me from my sins)
kiinyoiwa gat chalwokigkyu, (You forgave me my transgressions)
kiichama ko tomo achamin (You loved me before I loved you)
Nga ma inye ngot ami ano ra, (Without you, where would I be today?)
kitaguren ng’o ngo ma inye baba (What would be my identity if not for you?)
Atororin, atyenun tiendo ne leel (I praise you, and sing a new song to you)

(Chorus)

Ne ingetye kibanano, (You lift up the humble)
Komang’une te murere(?) (Out of the dust)
Agi akanabunekab mg’atak, (And you lift up from the mud)
Ichek baba che matinye kiy (Those who have nothing)
Agigochi kotebe ak mogorek, (You let them sit with kings)
Ne maitinye kalotune (You who shows no partiality)
Igimityi che nyeroti, (You give strength to the weak)
Ategisin aka anaten baba (I salute and praise you Father)

(Chorus)

Ategisin inye kiptaiyat, (I salute you God)
Ne igochinin eng songorikwak (You who bless the barren)
Ago e Kame ne baibai, (To become joyful mothers)
ng’o ne u inye we kiptaiyat (Who is like you God?)
Ye kiberur mami nechubei, (When you bless, no one can take it away)
Ye ile wei mami achicha (If you say yes, no one can say no)
Ategisin, ingolosun sobondanyu baba (I salute you, and my soul rejoices in you Father)

(chorus)
