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 trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory
of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,
now and forever and to the ages of ages.
