The Lord’s Prayer (Dolores Sand, y-dialect)

This traditional Christian prayer is given here to answer a request made in the  #CreeSimonSays FaceBook Group. The audio recording was provided by Dolores Greyeyes Sand, who learned this translation at the Church of St Joseph, in John D’Or Prairie Alberta, and uses it daily.

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. Amen.

  1. Thank you very much for this.

    I want to teach it to my godchild.

    Is it possible to have a side-by-side translation, English -Cree?

    Please advise

    Thank you.
