Text – Romanes
Amaro del ki si ando jio,
Bariaras kiro nahv,
Kiro Ampuritzia te avel,
Kiro manglimos te kurdial-pe,
Andi Lumia sahr si ando jio
De amen ahges amaro gesasko mahjo. Yertisahr amaro besehj,
Sar ame yertisardias gola ki kerdia besehj pala mende.
Na trahde ame andau besehja, apo trahde ame avri andi besehj.
Ke o ampuritzia, o zohr, I o gloria se kiro. Akahna I sojha mi.
