S. Guímis chun an Athar faoi mar a mhÚin ár Slánaitheoir dúinn a dhéanamh:

Ar n'Athair atá ar neamh, go naofar d'ainm, go dtaga do ríocht,
go ndeantar do thoil ar an talamh, mar a dhéantar ar neamh.
Ar n-arán laethúil tabhair dúinn inniu,
agus maith dÚinn ár bhfiacha, mar a mhaithimidne dar bhfeichiuna fÉin,
agus ná lig sinn i gcathú, ach saor sinn ó olc.
