The Lord's Prayer (Micmac)

Nujjinen wásóq, epin jiptek,
teluisin mekitétmek;
wásóq ntelitanen jiptek
iknmuiek wla nemulek wletesenen nátél.
Wásóq eykik,
telisqataskik jiptek;
elp nínen ntelisqatulek maqamikek eymek.
Telamukapnikl esemiekl
apj níkej kiskuk telamuktej penekenmuin nilunal.
Teliapiksiktaqajik wekwayuinamejik
elp kíl Niskam tliapiksiktuin.
Elue'lultiek, melkinin méj;
winsutíl mu ktikálin kesinukuamkl,
winjikl koqoél jiklátuin,
na tliaj.

English Version

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever.
Amen.
