quī es in caelīs,
Quia tuum est regnum, et potentia, et glōria in saecula saeculōrum.
Father, who art in Heaven,
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever.
The Pater noster, also called Lord's Prayer, is the best known Christian prayer. According to the New Testament, Jesus Christ gave it as an answer to the apostles as they asked how to pray. It appears in Luke's and Matthew's Gospels.
The final doxology must be an old addition; it is lacking in many manuscripts of the Bible, and Catholics usually do not use it in their personal prayer.
We have supplemented the text with macrons to mark long vowels.
The translation is a traditional English version from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer. Other versions such as the "King James" Bible use "debts" instead of "trespasses" and "our debtors" for "those who trespass against us", and thus are closer to the Latin text.
