The Official Lyrics

O, Capiz duog nga hamili
Dunang manggad sang Dios pinili.
Kadagatan mo kag kabukiran.
Pagatatapon imong kabugana-an.

Capiz matahum nga ngalan.
Sa tagui-pusuon ikaw mapahamtang.
Dumulu-ong ka, o Capizeño man ang kagayun.
Sa gihapon, mahamutan.

O, Capiz, Capiz
Bisan diin kami padulong
O, Capiz, Capiz
Imo ngalan pagadal-on

Capiz, probinsya nga pinasahi.
Bilidhon ang mga palanubli-on
Ipadayon, palig-unon, itib-ong Capiznon.
Tanan, magahugpong.


Imo ngalan pagadal-on
