أَبَانَا الذِي فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ،
لِيَتَقَدَّسَ اسْمُكَ
لِيَأْتِ مَلَكُوتُكَ
لِتَكُنْ مَشِيئَتُكَ فِي الأَرْضِ كَمَا السَّمَاءِ
اعْطِنَا خُبْزَنَا اليَوْمِيَّ
اعْفِنَا  فِي مِمَّا عَلَيْنَا فَقَدْ أَعْفَيْنَا نَحْنُ أيَضاً مَنْ
لَنَا عَلَيْهِ
وَلاَ تُدْخِلْنَا فِي تَجْرِبَةٍ
لَكِنْ نَجِّنَا مِنَ الشِّرِّيرِ
لأَنَّ لَكَ الْمُلْكَ وَالْقُوَّةَ وَالْمَجْدَ إِلَى الأَبَدِ
آمِين
