The Lord’s Prayer circa. 1400AD

Oure Fader in hevene riche,
Thin name be iblesced evere iliche,
Led us Loverd into thi blisce,
Let us nevre thin riche misse.
Let us Loverd underfon
That thin wille be evere idon
Also hit is in hevene
In erthe be hit evene,
The hevene bred that lasteth ay
Gif us Loverd this ilke day,
Forgif us Loverd in our bone
Al that we haven here misdone,
Also wisliche ase we forgiven
Ilwiles we in this worlde liven
Al that us is here misdo
And we biseken the thereto,
Led us Loverd to non fondinge
And sscild us from alle evel thinge.

Translation for ‘Our Father’:
Our Father in heaven rich,
Thy name be blessed I wish,
Lead us Lord into thy bliss,
Let us never thy riches miss.
Let us Lord accept alone
That thy will be ever done
Also as it is in heaven
In earth may it be even,
The heaven bread that lasteth today
Give us Lord this same day,
Forgive us Lord to our bone
All that we have here misdone,
Also as we wisely forgave
While we in this world live
All that here us misdo
And we beseech thee too,
Lead us Lord to our testing
And shield us from all evil thing.

Adapted using a medieval dictionary & a bit of
imagination - language scholars please excuse any
horrible mistakes.

The modern
version interwoven
with the old:

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
From the Church of England ‘Common Worship’ publications, published by Church House.
