he was born of the virgin Mary, ninasadiki;
to the earth he came as a baby, ninasadiki,
born for us, and for our salvation, ninasadiki. [Refrain]

and his kingdom shall have no ending, ninasadiki;

and forgiveness, pardon for sinners, ninasadiki;
I expect one great resurrection, ninasadiki,
and the life of the world to come, ninasadiki. [Refrain]
