The Lord’s Prayer: In A German Translation

lordsprayer22 The Lords Prayer: In A German Translation German theologians such as Paul Tillich and Gerhard Ebeling have had a tremendous impact on what we call the Progressive Christian movement today, their works being as vital and contemporary now as when they were written.

In tribute to them and other German theologians, we offer the following German translation of the Lord’s Prayer, the prayer Jesus taught his disciples when they asked him how to pray, the prayer that is the Rosetta Stone for understanding the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Lord’s Prayer

Vater unser im Himmel,
geheiligt werde dein Name.
Dein Reich komme.
Dein Wille geschehe,
wie im Himmel so auf Erden.
Unser tägliches Brot gib uns heute.
Und vergib uns unsere Schuld,
wie auch wir vergeben unsern Schuldigern.
Und führe uns nicht in Versuchung,
sondern erlöse uns von dem Bösen.
[Denn dein ist das Reich und die Kraft
und die Herrlichkeit in Ewigkeit.
Amen.]
