The Lord’s Prayer in Italian ”Padre Nostro”

If I have to choose one thing I would like to learn to recite in Italian, it would have to be the Rosary. But since at my present level that is nearly impossible, I would have to start with the Lord’s Prayer. And here it is,


Padre nostro che sei nei cieli
sia santificato il tuo nome
venga il tuo regno
sia fatta la tua volontà
come in cielo così in terra.
Dacci oggi il nostro pane quotidiano
Rimetti a noi i nostri debiti
Come noi li rimettiamo ai nostri debitori.
E non ci indurre in tentazione
Ma liberaci dal male.

Which according to my source would literally translate to:

Father of ours, who are in heaven,
blessed be your name,
may your kingdom come,
may your will be fulfilled
as in heaven as on earth.
Give us today our daily bread
Clean our debts
As we clean the debts of our debtors.
Do not let us slip into temptation
But free us from all evil.
