I know this video has gone around quite a lot, but I have found it inspiring once again nevertheless. Abwoon D'bashmaya are the first words of what is referred to as the "Lord's Prayer" in Aramean, the language spoken by Jesus. This is different than the one we dance to. Considering none of us speak Aramean it is easier to stick to the first couple of words than expecting the dancers to learn this fluently! I hope you enjoy it.

Though there are various translations from the original, this version was agreed upon by the English Language Liturgical Consultation in 1988, a group of national associations of ecumenical liturgists in the English-speaking world. Their work has been concerned with developing and promoting common liturgical texts in English and sharing a common lectionary wherever possible. It is the successor body to the International Consultation on English Texts.

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever.
