Long is a day for a warrior

Astride the heart of a storm

Born the Son of a Tiger

Hide him not an oath he has sworn..

Agi idup agi ngelaban!

Fiery heart of thorns and of scars

Scorching is the sun which burns his soul

Hungry his thirst which longs for the stars

Fear's a Word that scalds him for naught..

Agi idup agi ngelaban!

Quick as the wind which carries his feet

Swift as the birds which carry his fate

Hinder him not the destiny he shall meet

Finger his soul that shall makes him great..

Agi idup agi ngelaban!

Unbreakable soul and fearless resolve

Son of the Tiger, Tempered of the Creator

In the lands of a Warrior, an Oath has been sworn..

Agi idup agi ngelaban!
