AHA nau.
Neneno e tapu.
Iemie mare gaima.
Iemie warneno ipiaine ine lenu nene nau.
Kuma neii damoida iemie toro nane pe damoida.
Ago kulamena gamitu,
tekamaoli imetoro nene gamitu nupe pianoa tekamaoli iedietore.
Igai kurekure gamitu aka bogila;
ago kula gamitu mena mamane fisale.
Iemie mare; ga auka,
ga iremare ilu ilu. Amen.
