Original text and translations

English.png English text

1. "Lead us not into temptation,"
Jesus teaches us to pray,
recognizing how the tempter
works to bend us from the way
that is open to the promise
and the purpose of each day.

2. "Lead us not into temptation,"
Jesus guides a heart to cry
when the devil comes enticing,
spinning visions in the sky.
Wisdom knows an easy journey
is the devil's sweetest lie.

3. "Lead us not into temptation,"
Jesus understands the prayer.
Still he points us toward the desert
with its devils, well aware
God is sending better angels
on the wind to join us there.
