Aççe min, don,
gutte læk almin.
Basotuvvus du namma.
Bottus du rika.
Shaddus du datto, moft almest,
nuft maidai ædnam alde.
Adde migjidi odna bæive min juokkebæivalash laibbamek.
Ja adde migjidi min velgidæmek andagassi,
nuftgo migis addep min velgolazhaidasamek andagassi.
Ja ale doalvo min gæççalusa sisa.
Mutto bæste min bahast erit.
Dastgo du læ rika ja fabmo ja gudne agalashvutti.
Amen.
