MAMA i popo,
Da tabu na Ahamu.
Da mai na hugutamu.
Da legua na hehemu i thepa,
Ke vagagna i popo.
Hegami mai keagaieni na vana ke nabamami legumagavu.
Ko talutavoga na paluhamami,
Ke vagagna igami kiti talutavoga na paluhadia.
Ko sagoi lubatigami kori anau;
Me ko hati angami kori koakoa:
Eigua na nimua na huguta, ma na thaba, ma na silada,
Ke hau me hau.
Amen.
