Smith, Stevie: Vater Unser

Portre of Smith, Stevie

Vater Unser (English)

to the tune of the 'Londonderry Air'
Vater Unser,
Du Der im Himmel wohnst,
Behold thy child,
His prayers and his complaint.
He was conceived
In sin and born to set it on,
This sin is his,
His strength to act upon.
Oh, Father, heed
Thy child, let not the grave
Seal him in sin
Beyond they power to save.
Strike at his strength,
Leave weakness only for her vaunt,
Vater Unser,
Du Der im Himmel wohnst.

Vater Unser (Hungarian)

A „Londonderry Air“ dallamára
Vater unser,
Der Du im Himmel wohnst,
halld meg fiad,
ki Hozzád küld fohászt.
Bűnben fogant,
s első percétől él vele,
ez birtoka,
ez hajtóereje.
Ó, Atyám, óvd
fiad, bűnét ne sír
tapassza le,
mellyel kezed se bír.
Mérj rá csapást,
asszonyra hagyd a gyönge szót,
Vater unser,
Du Der im Himmel wohnst.
