dans toutes les langues encore!

We’re looking forward to tonight’s Bienvenue! International Service of Celebration for Le Grand Départ at 6:30pm at All Saints’ church… one of the blessings of putting the liturgy for it together has been thinking about just how many people have said these words in so many languages in so many places so many times over so many centuries…

toutes les langues encore

The Lord’s prayer

All: Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
French reader: Notre Père, qui es aux cieux,
Que ton nom soit sanctifié,

All: Your Kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven
German reader: Dein Reich komme;
dein Wille geschehe,
wie im Himmel so auf Erden.

All: Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Spanish reader: El pan nuestro de cada dia, danoslo hoy.
Y perdonanos nuestras deudas,
como tambien nosotros perdonamos a nuestros deudores.

All: Lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Italian reader: E non ci esporre alla tentazione,
ma liberaci dal maligno.

All: For the kingdom,
the power and the glory are yours.
Now and for ever.
Dutch reader: Want Uwer is het Koninkrijk
en de kracht
en de heerlijkheid
in de eeuwigheid.

All:    Amen.
