The Lord's Prayer in Old English
Read by Cathy Ball

Fęder ure žu že eart on heofonum;   Father our thou that art in heavens
Si žin nama gehalgod   be thy name hallowed
to becume žin rice   come thy kingdom
gewurže šin willa   be-done thy will
on eoršan swa swa on heofonum.   on earth as in heavens
urne gedęghwamlican hlaf syle us todęg   our daily bread give us today
and forgyf us ure gyltas   and forgive us our sins
swa swa we forgyfaš urum gyltendum   as we forgive those-who-have-sinned-against-us
and ne gelęd žu us on costnunge   and not lead thou us into temptation
ac alys us of yfele sožlice   but deliver us from evil. truly.

The Lord's Prayer in the Germanic Languages
Catherine N. Ball

I have prepared this page for the use of classes in linguistics, history of the English language, and Old English. Textbooks for such courses often discuss the Germanic languages in general terms, without giving more than a small list of cognate words for selected languages. These translations of a short text will, I hope, provide much richer data for the student. They may also help to satisfy some linguistic curiosity about Frisian, which textbooks often claim is the most closely related of the Germanic languages to English.
