The Lord's Prayer

 

Oh Thou, from whom the breath of life comes, 
who fills all realms of sound, light and vibration.
May Your light be experienced in my utmost holiest.
Your Heavenly Domain approaches.
Let Your Will come true in the universe -- all that vibrates, 
just as on earth -- all that is material and dense.
Give us wisdom, understanding, and assistance for our daily need, 
detach the fetters of faults that bind us, 
like we let go of the guilt of others.
Let us not be lost in superficial things -- materialism, common temptations; 
but let us be freed from those things that keeps us from our true purpose.
From You comes the all-working Will,
the lively strength to act, 
the song that beautifies all and renews itself from age to age.
Sealed in trust, faith and truth.
I confirm with my entire being.

    The Lord's Prayer has many different translations. Here is a page from where the above translation was found which also goes into some depth on how the different translations come about:

    As you know, spiritual writings are always open to much interpretation. It's startling how few words are in the Aramaic compared to any translation you can find. Same is true for most all translations of spiritual writings from their originals in most any language.
