(*) It is definitely "über deiner rechten Hand" instead of "über deinem rechten Hand."
It might also be "Der Herr ist dein Schatten über deiner rechten Hand" meaning "The Lord is your shade on your right hand" instead of "Der Herr ist ein Schatten über deiner rechten Hand".

Must have been a lot of work to copy and paste a prayer.

Smile Well, I pressed the button to submit too early. You must have stumbled upon my translation while I was still editing. Of course even now almost everything is the Lord´s Prayer but hey, that is not my fault. I didn´t write the song.

This is the lyrics of the song Vater Unser by E Nomine!
What can i do if they sing the Pater Noster in the song!

_maya_     February 3rd, 2011

That is exactly what I was trying to say. I am glad you share my opinion Smile !

You do not translate the Latin, "In nomine patris et filii et spiritus sancti", "In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit."

It is unfortunate that you have just copied the language of King James instead of putting it in modern English.

Well, the task was to translate the song from German to English, which is exactly what I did. I thought that someone who is not able to speak German might want to know what the song sounds like for someone who speaks German.

Furthermore the German lyrics are not the modern German version so it is only appropriate to take also a an old English version. In addition to that I really hate modern versions of old prayers (or old poems, plays, etc.). The modern versions simply cannot create this special atmosphere that the old versions create.

However, you should feel free to post an alternate version.
