The Lords Prayer

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,
and the power, and the glory,
forever and ever.
