Lungsod hatag sa kahitas-an
Anaa sa Silangang bahin sa Bohol
Buhong sa Kinaiyahan ug sa Katahum
Sa Bugnaw’ng Tubod Binisbisan


Lumulopyo ang Kalinaw Gihuptan
Sa mga Dumuduong Guihugupan
Maanyag nga mga Anak ug Kalantip sa Isip
Mga Kaliwat Naila sa Lalawigan

Dagat ug ang Kaumahan Gisaligan
Bulad Sanga ug Matam-is nga Calamay
Lamas ug Utanon sa Yutang Tabunon guikan
Ug Miabot sa mga Lalawigan
(Back to Chorus then Coda)

Oh Jagna!, Oh Jagna
Akong gipakamutya
