Bang ka'am ngampun subey kuwe' inin:

'O Amma', ka'u sama kami si surga'in,
karayaw pinagaddatan e"nnun we' ke"mon manusiya'in.
Karayaw we' ga'i tiggel magbaya' ne

Karayaw tinuhut kinabaya'annun
tu'u si dunya sa malu'u si surga'in.
Urunganun kami kinakan ellew inin.

Patalahun kami amban sassat duk
elliganun kami amban nakura' seyitanin.'
