The Lord's Bede in New English

(=The Lord's prayer)

The Lord's Bede

Our father who art in heaven

Hallowed be thy name

Thy kingdom come

Thy will be done

On earth as in heaven

Give us this day our daily bread

and forgive us our sins

As we forgive those who sin against us

Lead us not into costning

But free us from evil

For thine is the kingdom, the might and the greatness

Forever and ever


So be it.

(I am putting this here for linguistic reasons, not religious ones, since this bede is often used to show how tongues are alike or not)
