A Translation of the Lord's Prayer

Here is a version of the Lord’s Prayer by G.J.R. Ouseley from The Gospel of the Holy Twelve, posted on The Nazarene Way of Essenic Studies.

A Translation of the Lord’s Prayer
(inspired by Matthew 6: 9-13, Luke 11: 2-4)

Our Father-Mother Who art above and within: 
Hallowed be Thy Name in twofold Trinity. 
In Wisdom, Love and Equity Thy Kingdom come to all. 
Thy will be done, As in Heaven so in Earth. 
Give us day by day to partake of Thy holy Bread,
and the fruit of the living Vine. 
As Thou dost forgive us our trespasses,
so may we forgive others who trespass against us. 
Shew upon us Thy goodness, that to others we may shew the same. 
In the hour of temptation, deliver us from evil. Amen.
