Simple answer: kamsa hamnida or komap sumnida

Actually, though it's not so simple since it depends on the level of the speaker relative to the listener.

A less respectful term would be "koma wayo" But to a child you could say "koma wa"

Of course, since we are probably limited to Roman characters here, that's the best I can do. But the Korean for the above would be (just in case your browser can read it):

감사 합니다.

I have given you the Korean equivalent. Should you need further help, please email me. In English, you may pronounce it as "Kamsa-hap-nida".
