W. L. Lorimer In Doric bi David Ogston Anon.
Our Faither in heiven,
be hallowt thy name ;

thy will be dune
on the yird, as in heiven.
Gíe us our breid for this incomin day;
forgíe us the wrangs we hae wrocht,
as we hae foríen the wrangs we hae dree’d;
an sey-us-na sairlie, but sauf us
frae the Ill Ane:
for the Kíngdom, the pouer an the glorie ar thine
for ivver an aye. Amen.
Faither o us aa,
Faa’s hame is Heiven,
We haud up Your name.
Lat Your Kingly wark gyang forrit,
An lat Your wye win throwe doon here amang hiz
The same as it daes abeen.
Gie us this day the mait we need.
Gin we hae deen wrang, dicht aff the sclate agin’s
Like we wid dee for een anither.
Keep’s airted awa fae faar we’re like tae tummle,
An rax us free o coorseness:
For Your’s is the Croon
An the Micht
An the Glorie,
Aawye an aawye.
Sae lat it be.
Wir Faither in Hivin,
Yir name be keepit in awe,
Yir ring begin,
i the warld as in Hivin.
Gie us ilk day wir breid

An forgie whit we are awin tae Yirsel,
As we forgie ithers whit is awin tae us.
An dinna trachle us sairly,
but free us frae the Deil;
fur the Croun is yir ain,
An the micht an the glorie,
Warld upo warld.
Sae be it.

The tradeetional an best-kent version in Inglis is the ane frae the "Book of Common Prayer" (1662):[12][13]

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.
