11 May The Lord’s Prayer in Spanish
In this Living Hour post, we’ll share a Spanish translation of the Lord’s Prayer (Padre Nuestro). Whenever one thinks about Spain and its contribution to progressive Christianity and theology, the works of Miguel de Unamuno come to mind—especially his book The Agony of Christianity. Don’t let the title fool you, Unamuno’s work isn’t one of despair or depression but rather love and hope.
In other words, Unamuno believes that feelings of agony are often pathways to God. And that all true Christianity is mysticism—as can be seen throughout the Gospels in Jesus’s words and teaching (see our post Miguel de Unamono & Jesus). Unamuno felt that to be Christian was to embrace a mystical attitude towards life. And thus his theology falls squarely within the Living Hour’s modern Lord’s Prayer interpretation.
We’ve also included the English translation of the Lord’s Prayer for those native Spanish speakers who are learning English and vice versa.
The Our Father Prayer in Spanish
Padre nuestro, que estas en el cielo, santificado sea tu nombre;
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name;
Venga a nosotros tu reino,
Thy kingdom come,
Hágase tu voluntad, en la tierra como en el cielo.
Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Danos hoy nuestro pan de cada dia,
Give us this day our daily bread,
Perdona nuestras ofensas, como también nosotros perdonamos a los que nos ofenden.
Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
No nos dejes caer en la tentación
Lead us not into temptation
Y líbranos del mal
And deliver us from evil.
Porque tuyo es el reino, el poder, y la gloria
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory
Por los siglos de los siglos. Amén.
Forever and ever. Amen.
