Anui pau pungme je anui lun gum ze anui pau de lun gai lau;
Anui je duairabe ge ngua gai se lau,
Kane kesiabe gene anui je ripat kai lau. Amen.

Anui peu tinggim ge bampeu Ning ji peize ‘nchi bam lau;
Our Father, in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name.

ning gu heguangram peize wnagkeu lau;  Ning sui ne tinggim ge tew gum ze, Kedei ge du peize tew lau.
10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.

Nemai ge anui gu nai’nsangne gu hetak pei lau;
11 Give us this day our daily bread.

Anui pau pungme je anui lun gum ze anui pau de lun gai lau;
12 And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

Anui je duairabe ge ngua gai se lau, Kane kesiabe gene anui je ripat kai lau. Amen.
13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
