Laird's prayerEdit

Wor father that is iv hivvan,
Holy is thaw nyem.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be deun on earth,
The syem as iv hivvan.
Give uz teday oor daily breed,
An forgive uz oor sins,
As we forgive the wrangs
Others hes deun agyen uz.
And dinnet lead uz inte temptation,
But deliver uz frev evil.
