Pater Noster
(Matthew 6 : 9 – 13)

Pater noster,
qui es in caelis,
sanctificetur nomen tuum.
Adveniat regnum tuum.
Fiat voluntas tua,
Sicut in caelo, et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum
da nobis hodie.
Et dimitte nobis debita nostra,
sicut et nos dimittimus
debitoribus nostris.
Et ne nos inducas in tentationem
sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

Our Father
(Revised Standard Version English translation)

Our Father
who art 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 debts,
As we also have forgiven
our debtors;
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil. Amen
