Tulu tiutangaroa hokinia hika.
'Tamamai lolo taetae, a hinamu u kokona.
Keu tiutangaroa kwara a tangaloi rana domi mavaki-ning"o,
rana hungu tavutimu, i ningo a Hung"we Lakua,
rana vai na domimu lo varamana
ne taritarisa hokinia hinea aira lolo taetae ramo toko vai.
Ko bete kamai hinaka hika karang"wa huri na rani hika.
Ko domindomi koro lakwa-kami nomai vakasileana
hokinia i kami keu domindomi koro lakwara
hinea rau vakasile vohovohoi-kami.
Ko hatu tiraki-kami tilo hala na sinasina huira,

Amen.
