Our Father, which are in Heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done
On Earth, as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day, our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory
Forever and Ever,
