THE LORD’S 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. Amen.
[*]– I learned my first prayers in Spanish, from my mother. In Spanish, The Lord’s Prayer differs from the English translation: “y no nos dejes caer en la tentación“– (“and don’t let us succumb to temptation“).
