Heil


Explanation:
"Heil dem großen Gott."
Originally, the English salutation comes from the word hæil for healthy and thus means to wish someone well with a greeting. The German word has the same word stem and means the same.

Cheerio,
Dierk

Gegrüßet seist du, großer Gott!


Explanation:
Hail Mary is <Gegrüßest seist Du, Maria>. If what you're asking is Christian, maybe the title or part of a hymn (sorry, I'm not very knowledgeable in this area) then <Gegrüßet seist du, großer Gott!> could be an option.
