Hail Mary (Micmac)

Kuleyn Máli, sapéwutíl wajpin,

Pejilisapéwin Máli wkwisin Westaúlkw,
níkej alasutmelsewin eluéultiek aqq apís wikwiatiek alasutmelsewin.
Amen.

English Version

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.
