Text

Tata beto yikele na zulu
Dizina ya nge ya sakumuka
Kipfumu ya nge ya kuiza
Luzolo ya nge ya vangama
Na ntoto mutindu yake vangama na zulu
Pesa beto bubu madia ya beto ya kilumbu yayi
Lembolo betu ba mfuka na nge
Mutindu beto pe kelembolo
Na bayina beto bakaka ba mfuka
Pe nge bika betu ve kubua na mpukumunu
Kasi kula beto na yimbi
Kimfumu, luzingu, pe lukumu ke ya nge tina tsuka.
Amen

Text – Line for Line Translation

Tata beto yikele na zulu
Tata na beto yikele na dizulu
Father our who are in heaven

Dizina ya nge ya sakumuka
Bika Dizina na nge ya sakumuka
Let name your be glorified

Kipfumu ya nge ya kuiza
Kimfumu na nge ya kuiza
Reign your comes

Luzolo ya nge ya vangama
Luzolo na nge ya vangama na ntoto
Willing your made in earth

Na ntoto mutindu yake vangama na zulu
mutindu ya kevanganaka na dizulu
As it is made in heaven

Pesa beto bubu madia ya beto ya kilumbu yayi
pesa beto bubu yayi madia na beto ya kilumbu na kilumbu
Give us today our food of day each day

Lembolo betu ba mfuka na nge
lembolo beto bamfuka na beto
Forgive us debts our

Mutindu beto pe kelembolo
mutindu beto kelemboloko
As we forgive

Bayina beto bakaka ba mfuka
na bayina beto bakaka bamfuka
Those who are our debts

Ku bika betu ve kubua na mpukumunu
Kubika beto ve kubua na mpukumunu
Do not let us fall in temptation

Kasi kula beto na yimbi
Kansi kula beto na yimbi
But deliver us in evil

Samo kimfumu, luzingu, pe lukumu ke ya nge tina tsuka.
Samu Kimfumu, nkembo mpe nzitusu yikele ya nge na bamvula nionso
Because reign, glory and honor are for you in years and years.
