9. Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed by thy name.  10. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 11. Give us this day our daily bread;  12. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors;  13. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
(Some texts add, For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen. after verse 13.)
