Pater Noster

The Lord's Prayer, also called the Our Father and the Pater Noster, is a venerated christian prayer that, according to New Testament, was taught by Jesus to his disciple.

When chickens are cold, they go up into the trees; when ducks are cold, they go down into the water.

Pater Noster

Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,  the power, and the glory, for ever and ever.
