On the basis of Eilenberger theory, surface bound states and spontaneous current are studied in cyclic d-wave superconductors as a broken time-reversal symmetry of superconductivity in cubic lattice symmetry. We discuss how the spontaneous current and the electronic states depend on the orientation of the surface relative to the symmetry of superconductivity. The condition for topological Fermi arcs of zero-energy surface bound states to appear is identified in the complex pairing function of the cyclic d-wave.
