The Lord's Prayer in Anglo-Saxon


In Anglo-Saxon (aka Old English)


Fæder ure şu şe eart on heofonum,

si şin nama gehalgod.

to becume şin rice,

gewurşe ğin willa,

on eorğan swa swa on heofonum.

urne gedæghwamlican hlaf syle us todæg,

and forgyf us ure gyltas,

swa swa we forgyfağ urum gyltendum.

and ne gelæd şu us on costnunge,

ac alys us of yfele soşlice.


In modern English:


Our father who art in heaven,

Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done,

On earth as is in heaven.

Give us this day,

Our daily bread.

And forgive us of our trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation.

And deliver us from evil.

(For thine is the Kingdom, the power,

and the glory, forever.)
