The Lords Prayer in Haitian Creole

Papa nou

Papa nou ki nan syèl la, se pou yo respekte non ou, se pou yo rekonèt se ou ki wa, se pou volonte ou fèt sou tè a, tankou nan syèl la. Pen nou bezwen chak jou a Ba nou li jodi a. Padone sa nou fè w, tankou nou padone moun ki fè nou ki chòy. Pa kite nou pran nan pyèj, men delivre nou ak sa ki mal. Amèn.

This is the traditional version from the Wikisource, which also has a 1998 version from the Société Biblique Haïtienne.
