Ama mi nga hinnian kan langit,
Madayadayaw zinan ya Ngahan mu.
Mappatul ka zinan ngin kan ya utun.
Makua zinan ya urem kune na kuan ta lusak ana kan langit.
Iddan mu ya kanan nga mawag mi kan yaw nga algaw,
En pakoman mu ikami kan ya liwaliwat mi
nga kagitta ya nepammakoma mi kan ya nakaliwat ira kan ikami.
Marim ipamavulun nga megiya kami kan tentasion,
En palliaran mu ikami kan y Satanas.

Itawes is primarily spoken in the Philippines by the Itawit, or "people of across the river," in an area that lies between the Chico and Matalog rivers.

We're working to extend the reach of the prayer Jesus taught us, with podcasts, a DVD, online videos, songs, sheet music, and more. Transcending language and cultural barriers, The project name, "Voices Home," refers to how this project transcends skin-deep differences; it's the same prayer, lifted homeward.
