Our holy Father in heaven dwelling,
blessed Thy name be forever:
hallowed on high in heaven and earth,
revered and reverenced in the realms of Men.
Thy kingdom come to captive mankind:
from fetters free us of fire and doom.
Thy will be done in this world Thou hast made
even as 'tis so where angels dwell
in golden halls. Give us this day
our daily bread, for though dire be life
it keepeth us well through the cold winter
and the burning summer. This boon grant us:
forgive us out guilts, our debts of doom
as we forgive our woe-filled debtors
and move them to joy. O Master, save us!
From our soiled hearts our sings remove!
From Hell save us! To Heaven bear us!
And guide us not into guile and temptation:
to sin lead us not, but save us from evil.
