Naʻe maʻu ʻa e vahe ko ʻení ʻi ha taimi ʻa ia naʻe nofo ai ʻa e kau takí ʻo fakalaulauloto mo fakakaukau ki he fakapōpulaʻi ʻo e kakai mei ʻAfiliká ʻi he konitinēniti ʻAmeliká pea mo hono fakapōpulaʻi ʻo e fānau ʻa e tangatá ʻi he māmaní kotoa.

  Pea ko ia, ʻe atangi ʻa e kakai ʻo e māmaní koeʻuhi ko e heletā pea mo e lilingi toto; pea ko e meʻa ʻi he bhongé, mo e mahaki fakaʻauhá, mo e ngaahi mofuiké, pea mo e mana ʻo e langí, pea mo e ʻuhila mālohi mo ngingilá foki, ʻe ngaohi ai ʻa e kakai ʻo e māmaní ke nau ongoʻi ʻa e houhau, mo e tuputāmaki, mo e toʻukupu ctautea ʻo e ʻOtua Māfimafí, kae ʻoua ke dfakaʻosi ʻe he fakaʻauha kuo kotofá ʻa e ngaahi puleʻanga kotoa pē;

  Koeʻuhi ke ngata ʻa e ʻalu hake ki he telinga ʻo e ʻEiki ʻo e aSapaotí ʻa e tangi ʻa e kau māʻoniʻoní, pea mo e btoto ʻo e kau māʻoniʻoní, mei he kelekelé ke sāuni ki honau ngaahi filí.

  Ko ia, mou atuʻu ʻi he ngaahi potu toputapu, pea ʻoua ʻe hiki mei ai kae ʻoua ke hokosia ʻa e ʻaho ʻo e ʻEikí; he vakai, ʻoku haʻu bvave ia, ʻoku folofola ʻe he ʻEikí. ʻĒmeni.
