Sample text (Lord's Prayer)

Amun Tatay nga sa langit, Kabay pa nga taodon kaw ang mga tao, Kabay pa nga magari kaw ron digi kanamun, Kag kon paiwan nga imong kabubutun ginatoman doto sa langit; Kabay pa nga tomanun ra digi sa kalibotan. Tawi kami amun kinanglan nga pagkaun sa adlaw nga dia, Patawada kami sa amun mga sala, Ay ginpatawad namun ra ang nagkasala kanamun. Indi mo kami pagipadaug sa mga pagsolay, Kondi lowasa kami kay satanas.



  1. After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
  2. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
  3. Give us this day our daily bread.
  4. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
  5. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
