Ilocano – Bantay Ansad

Author: Nepo T. Benitez Jr.

Maysaka a napintas a buya
Kas iti maysa a dayag mayarigka
Binaludnak ta kayawmo a nagpaiduma
Uray kasanot’ kangato bantay-barukongmo,
Sang-ataekto latta
Tapno innak imatangan pakabuklam
Nga ingget sadia
No addaak dita alimpatokmo
Umapay kakaimasan a rikna
Ket dagiti arapaapko maabelda
Bantay Ansad, babaen toy tugot-pluma
Adtoyak nga umay kenka umabrasa
Wen, saan nga umdas dagiti balikas
A pangibuksilak pammategko kenka.
