It's Yhe Vala Lakha:
Original text: Ya trau, ya shawi, ya brech!
It's Nu Aves Khara-Ansha:
Original text: Ro vrero, "Inu'e nusha tihipleya?" Nye vrero, "I'ai ineya. I'ai
ineya, i'ai ineya."
It's Li' Anyerra Tarah:
Original text: Po'i dusao, "Ut'or i li' fau i li' urua?" En dusao, "Na'or a u
faitupran, a u faitupran, a u faitupran."
The Seven Last Words of Christ, in Yhe Vala Lakha
Original text: E revo, ya tau ya yempro naiyeri;" tau eikhai taiyha ya taufai
Ya yhe nyare ara teina naa naikharesh lakhasun E berine, ya an tichya. E

Trautinai, e revo radeki, naava lakhatshenaa
