TATA a wonana,
Nasasana na ronorono.
Nona tunuqe na sumai.
Nona tarani na lai le veina merea wonana.
Lai sumai qariki min kami na sinage u tarisa be qariki.
Go tigi gina bugumi,
mere kami mo tigi gina bugura.
Go kare tektekerag kami tea ale galeana;
Go lai kami dani na anseseta.
Anona a tunuqe, ti a sori,
ti a sinara, na toga na toga. Amen.
