Tatá na bísó, ya Likoló,
Nkómbó ya Yɔ́ ezala na lokumo,
Bokonzi na Yɔ́ eya,
Nioso Yɔ́ olingi esalama awa na nsé
Ndenge esalamaka na likoló
Pésa bísó lɛlɔ́ biléi oyo ekoki
límbisa bísó mabé tosali yo,
lokóla bísó pe tolimbisi mabe basali bísó.
Kotika monguna ameka bísó tê
Kasi bikisa bíkisa bísó na mabé
Po bokonzi, nguya, pe lokumu ezali ya yo seko.

Translation

Tatá na bísó, ya  likoló, (or: Tatá na bísó, ozala o likoló,)
Father our who is in heaven,

Nkómbó ya Yɔ́ ezala na lokumo  (or: Tika ete Nkómbó ya Yɔ́ ekumisama)
Let name your be holy (sanctified)
[Tika ete] Bokonzi na yo eya,
Let Kingdom (reign) your come,

Nioso Yɔ́ olingi esalama awa na nsé  (or: Tika ete mokano na yo esalama awa na nse)
Let will your be done here on earth

ndenge esalamaka (kuna) na likoló
as it is done in heaven

Pésa bísó lɛlɔ́ biléi [oyo ekoki / na biso ya mokolo na mokolo]
Give us today food our of each day,

Límbisa bísó mabé tosali yo,    (or: Limbisa mabe na biso)
Forgive us our evil acts (debts)

lokóla bísó pe tolimbisi mabe basali bísó kasi bikisa bíkisa bísó na mabé.
ndenge biso mpe tolimbisaka baoyo basalaka biso mabe.
as we also we are forgiving those people who to us did evil acts.

Po bokonzi, nguya, pe lokumu ezali ya yo seko.
Batela biso mpo tokweya na komekama te, kasi kangola biso na mabe.
Keep us in order we do fall in temptation not, but deliver us from evil acts

[Pamba te, bokonzi, nguya mpe nkembo ezali ya yo, mpo na libela na libela.]
[For the reign (Kingdom), power and glory is yours, forever and ever.]

Amen.
