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. *    * *

[ * Alternate ending:  …forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from the evil one. ]

[ * * Roman Catholic Preface:   At the Savior’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say…  Postscript:  Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. ]
