MA raina,
Ne Ie ni ruar.
Ne gamili ni ven me.
Ne dotme ni mena na viena dawa na raina.
Ola me dome hi kemam ne hinega ta hine dome.
Ke duamvita ne heme kemem dawa kemem van duamvita ne hemehe.
Tate vanvanake kemem li dagare kemem;
Wola kemam da ne hiwhiw.
Ne gamili, ni mena meke,
mi ne heri ni toga ni toga. Amen.
