Padre Nostro
Our Father (Lord’s prayer in Italian)

Padre nostro che sei nei cieli,
Our Father who art in heaven
(Our Father who are in the skies)

sia santificato il tuo nome,
hallowed be thy name

venga il tuo regno,
thy kingdom come,

sia fatta la tua volontà
thy will be done

come in cielo così in terra.
on earth, as it is in heaven.
(as it is in heaven, so on earth)

Dacci oggi il nostro pane quotidiano,
Give us this day our daily bread,

e rimetti a noi i nostri debiti
and forgive us our trespasses, 
(and forgive us our debts)

come anche noi li rimettiamo ai nostri debitori,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
(as we forgive them to our debtors)

e non abbandonarci alla tentazione,
and lead us not into temptation,
(and abandon us not to temptation)

Trivia: This verse was once e non indurci in tentazione, and provoke us not into temptation, which is the version I grew up listening to at Church. The Our Father prayer in Italian was recently updated.

ma liberaci dal male.
but deliver us from evil.
(but free us from evil)
