Langa, mulilo!

Look, fire!

Mona, umulilo!


Mulilo ulaumpa.

Fire burns.

Umulilo uloca.


Mulilo ulajika.

Fire cooks.

Umulilo ulepikilwako.


Mulilo ulapa kukasalilwa

Fire gives warmth.

Umulilo ulapela icikabilila.


Mulilo ulapa Mumuni.

Fire gives light.

Umulilo ulapela ulubuto.


Langa, Mulilo!

Look, fire!

Mona, umulilo!


Mulilo Ngubotu.

Fire is wonderful.

Umulilo usuma.


Alimwi ulaanguzu.

And it is powerful.

Elo kabili, walikwata amaka.
