The Lord’s Prayer
   Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come,
your will be done, on earth as in heaven.   
    Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we
forgive those who sin against us.
    Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever.
