The Lord's Prayer (Modern Verson)

Jay Forrest

Our Source, who is transcendent,
honored be your name;

Your rulership come;
Your will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us each day the food we need.

And forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sinned against us.

And help us not give into temptation;
but deliver us from the evil one.

For yours is the rulership,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.


An inclusive dynamic equivalent translation from the Textus Receptus Greek New Testament by Jay N. Forrest
