Nem God rrekene tumaa naamrete, kem op wete.

Nemre Hevenke tetaana Aapiy,
nem salba, nere sig yenbowaay tete.
Nem salba, ne kwom paanan site.
Nere kwom taama rrem nere weba
tumaa atop nenba.
Opkaap nem salba, nem nowselre taataama
nem kirrkirr atop nente.
Ne nemne gwotoptere aawas nowate.
Taataama rrem nemne yaaperr nenba,
nem rremkene kelmenaaba.
Opkaap neren merra,
nemre yaaperr nenbakaap ne serrte.
Ne sene kaap haabote.
Ne nemne saw maana saylaate.
Seten rre nemne kaap kaykerrate.
Kem Aapiy God rrekene tumaa naamrete,
kem atop wete.
