Here is a totally word-to-word translation in English:

You our father who are there-above / That your name be blessed hundred times / That the day come when one you aknowledges as master / That one you obey on-the earth as in heaven / Give us today the bread for our day / Make a cross on all our sins / As we it do also on the sins of others / Do not let us fall in the desire of doing wrong / But chase the bad far away from our-selves
