This song is the Swahili form of the Lords Prayer (except changed a little bit) sung by the Soweto Gospel Choir. I personally find it quite beautiful so I thought I'd share it. (Sorry the video contributes very little to the actual song, but the song was originally made for a game.)

So what does everyone think?
And this is how the song translates,
CHORUS
Our Father, Jesus, who art
in Heaven. Amen!
Our Father, Jesus
Hallowed be thy name.
(x2)

Give us this day our daily bread,
Forgive us of
our trespasses
As we forgive others
Who tresspass against us
Lead us not into temptation, but
deliver us from Evil, and you are forever and ever!

CHORUS

Your kingdom come, your will be done
On Earth as it is in Heaven. (Amen)

CHORUS

Give us this day our daily bread,
Forgive us of
our trespasses
As we forgive others
Who tresspass against us
Lead us not into temptation, but
deliver us from Evil, and you wake the dead (?)

Our Father, Jesus who art...
Hallowed be thy name.
(x2)

Well if you listen to the two, they are different, the one I shared is the one I prefer.
