 Faþer vár

Listen to the text  


Faþer vár es ert í himenríki,
verði nafn þitt hæilagt.
Til kome ríke þitt,
værði vili þin
sva a iarðu sem í himnum.
Gef oss í dag brauð vort dagligt.
Ok fyr gefþu oss synþer órar,
sem vér fyr gefom þeim er viþ oss hafa misgert.
Leiðd oss eigi í freistni,
heldr leys þv oss frá öllu illu.

Our Father, who art in Heaven,
hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy Will be done,
on Earth, as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.


This Norse version of the Pater Noster was edited in 1878 by the Icelandic scholar Þorvaldur Bjarnarson.

The translation is a traditional English version from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer.
