The Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic

Music used with permission from India Jiva

Ancient Aramaic and Hebrew are beautiful, soft and musical, not gutteral.

Lyrics

Ab w’n d’ b’Shmaya

Merciful Father in Heaven, Aya

net qadda shmach

Sacred be Your Name

tee-ete mal-ku-tach

May Your Kingdom come

neh-weh tsarayanic

May Your will be done

ay kannat b’shmayaph bonop

as so in Heaven, also in the Earth

havalah lahma d’sunkunana ya manah

Give unto us the bread of our need today

wash-bu-o-qan hau-bayn waha-tym

And forgive us our debt

ay-kana do-phnan sh-bo-qan ahlay-ban

as we have forgiven all who are indebted to us

we-la tah-lan layanes-yu-nah

and do not let us enter into testing,

ela pa-tsan min bi-sha

but deliver us from evil,

me-tul dee-la-khe mal-ku-tah

because Yours is The Kingdom

nu-hay-ee bahan, wah-tesh-buhta

and The Power, and The Glory

l’-ah-lam al-min

never ending, eternal

‘ a:l ‘ ap pé Ye’sh’wuh

In the name of Yeshwuh,

ah-meyn

Amen

Understanding “merciful” in the first line.
