'Te motou Tamana tela i te lagi:

Ke tapu tou igoa,
Ke oko mai tou Malo,
Ke fai te mea e loto koe ki ei
i lalo nei, e pela mo te faiga
i te lagi.
Tuku mai omotou meakai e 'tau
mo te aso nei;
Fakamagalo mai omotou agasala
E pela mo matou e fakamagalo
atu ki tino kola e agasala mai ki a matou;
Kae sa takitakigina matou ki se
tofotofoga, kae faka'sao mai
matou mai te masei.'
