අප රැකවරණය ලබනා හැම දෙන මිනිසුන්

ජිවිතයේ යම් දවසක වැරදුණු මිනිසුන්

අපය ඔවුන් හට යහමග පෙන්වන මිනිසුන්

අනාගතේ හොඳ නොහොඳ කියා දෙන මිනිසුන්

කොටු පවුරින් වටවී සිටිනා

මනු කැල වෙත පා මෙත් කරුණා

දී රැකවරණ ද පිළිසරණා

සුව සෙත සලසමු එක් සිතිනා

අප රැකවරණය ලබනා ………

සිපිරි ගෙදර පියවරුන් අපි

සිපිරි ගෙදර මවුවරුන් අපි

සිපිරි ගෙදර නෑසියන් අපි

සිපිරි ගෙදර හිතවතුන් අපි

අප රැකවරණය ලබනා ………………
