BEMBA

Our Father, who art in Heaven, 

Shifwe wa mu Mūlu,

Hallowed be thy Name. 

Ishina lyenu libelwe akatīna.

Thy kingdom come. 

Ubufumu bwenu bwise.

Thy will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. 

Ukufwaya kwenu kucitwe pano nse nga mu mūlu.

Give us this day our daily bread. 

Tupēleni icakulya cesu ica lelo.

And forgive us our trespasses,

Mutulekelele imisha yesu,

as we forgive those who trespass against us.

ngefyo na ifwe tulekelela abatulīle misha.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Mwitutwala mu kweshiwa, lelo mututuule mufyabipa.

For thine is the kingdom,

Pantu ubufumu

and the power,

namaka

and the glory,

no kucindama

for ever and ever.

Amen.

Amen.

Mutipatse ife lero cakudya cathu calero.

And forgive us our trespasses,

Ndipo mutikhululukire mangawa athu,

as we forgive those who trespass against us.

monga ifenso takhululukira amangawa anthu.

And lead us not into temptation,  

Ndipo musatitengere kokatiyesa,

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
