Lord’s prayer – Afrikaans

Ons Vader wat woon in die hemel
Geheilig sy U Naam, laat U ryk kom,
U wil geskied, soos in die hemel so ook op die aarde.
Gee ons vandag ons dag se brood
En vergeef ons al ons skulde,
Net soos ons vergewe die wat teen ons sondig
Laat kom ons nie in versoeking,
Maar verlos ons van die Bose
Want U is die ryk en die sterkte en die ere
Vir ewig en ewig. AMEN

 

Lord’s Prayer – (XHOSA)

Bawo wethu’ osezulwini
Mali’ngcwaliswe iGama lakho
Mabufike ubu’kumkani bakho
Mayenzi’we intando yakho
Emhlabeni nje’ngasezulwini
Siphe namhlanje iso’nka sethu semihla ngemihla.
Usixole’le izono zethu
Njengokuba nathi sibaxole’la abo basonayo.
Ungasiyeke’li ekulingweni
Koko sisindi’se enkohlakalweni.
Ngokuba boba’kho ubukumkani, namandla, nozuko,
Ngoku nangona’phakade. Amen

 

The Lord’s Prayer –Tsonga

Tata wa hinal’anga matilwen’,
Vito ra Wena a ri hlawuriwe.

Hikuva kufuma ka Wena
Ni matimba, niku twala,
Hi laha kungaheriki. Amen.
