MAMA ihotu,
ke ba tabu Nasoamu.
Ke mai natotumu.
Ke mana na zajahamu ivavana ekoaza ihotu.
Ko tusu vanihami mai ke neni na muza ke aza ke neni.
Ko molotahani na kibomami ekoaza ihami ami molotahani na kibodira.
Ko jika na moluluani hami tana na gugure.
Ko taho tahani hami tani na tanotobo.
Animu na tototu, ma na mana,
ma na totora ke ba me baa. Amen.
