Inscription

OUR FATHER /
WHO ART IN HEAVEN /
HALLOWED BE THY NAME /
THY KINGDOM COME /
THY WILL BE DONE ON EARTH /
AS IT IS IN HEAVEN. /
GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD /
AND FORGIVE US OUR TRESSPASSES /
AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO TRESSPASS AGAINST US. /
AND LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION, /
BUT DELIVER US FROM EVIL. /
FOR THIS IS THE KINGDOM /
AND THE POWER /
AND THE GLORY FOREVER. /
AMEN.
