Our Father who art in heaven


thy kingdom come

mabufike ubukumkani bakho, mayenziwe intando yakho emhlabeni

thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven

give us this day our daily bread

Siphe namhla isonka sethu semihla ngemihla

and forgive us our trespasses

as we forgive those who trespass against us

nathi sibaxolela aabo banamatyala kuthi

and lead us not into temptation
