The Lord's Prayer

I have tried to keep this translation of the Lord's Prayer as close to the Latin version as possible. That's why I have given a more literal English translation as well.

Our Father
parent-man of-much-me
Manan demumi

Our Father who you are in Heaven,
parent-man of-much-me which you place heaven
Manan demumi, ke tu lo tan,

Hallowed be your name.
must passive-hold-high name of-you / must passive-holy name of-you.
bi johunbonso non detu / bi josant non detu.

Your reign come.
must to-future time-control of-you.
Bi difu tenkon detu.

Your will be, in heaven as on earth.
noun-want of-you must exist and in heaven and on earth
Luyau detu bi xi, he ne tan he xan pon.
