AMAMAMI ile ileni,
Na Satamu muni e maea.
Na Alahana ioe muni e lae mai.
Na moola na saemu ani ne muni kire taui oto,
iano ilehu mala oto ileni.
O ta mai siiri muniami mai naulaa e haidadana ana siiri.
Na O sae asia na mai roroana iami,
mala iami noone a sae asia na mai roroana
ikira na maile ea haaroroaira muniami.
Na o suuri tole iami munia na malaohonamami,
o haauriami maania a laa ni orahaa.
Ana o tooana na alahana,
na na nauamana na na manikuluana
na esie aopa oto oo. Amen.
