Our Father
Mama avunana,    (Daddy on top)
Nasasama ni rono.    (Your name is holy)
Nom o marana ni mule ma.    (Your rule come)
Nom o maros ni lai alalanana tama avunana.    (What you want must happen down here as well as up there)
Le ma qarig mun kamam o sinaga we tira ape qarig.    (Give us today enough food for today)
Ka nomvitag napugamam ka nomvitag napugara.    (Forgive us our sins, in the same way we forgive those who sin against us).
Nipea ukekeg ilo galeva,    (Do not lead us into temptation)
kamam ka lav nan o ganganor.   (save us from badness)
