"Vater Unser" as written by and Marius Mueller-westernhagen....
Vater unser der do bist I'm Himmel
Geheiligt werde Dein Name
Dein Reich komme
Dein Wille geschehe
Wie I'm Himmel als auch auf Erden
Und vergib uns unsre Schuld
Wir auch wir vergeben unsern Schuldigern

E nomine patris et fili et spiritus sancti

Vater unser der do bist I'm Himmel
Geheiligt werde Dein Name
Dein Reich komme
Dein Wille geschehe
Wie I'm Himmel als auch auf Erden
Unser täglich Brot gib uns heute
Und vergib uns unsre Schuld
Wir auch wir vergeben unsern Schuldigern
Und führe uns nicht in Versuchung
Sondern erlöse uns von dem Übel
Denn Dein ist das Reich und die Kraft und die Herrlichkeit in Ewigkeit
Amen

E nomine patris et fili et spiritus sancti
E nomine patris et fili et spiritus sancti

Vater unser der do bist I'm Himmel
Geheiligt werde Dein Name
Dein Reich komme
Dein Wille geschehe
Wie I'm Himmel als auch auf Erden
Und vergib uns unsre Schuld
Wir auch wir vergeben unsern Schuldigern
Wir auch wir vergeben unsern Schuldigern

Vater höre meine Stimme
Herr höre meine Stimme
Lasset uns beten
E nomine patris et fili et spiritus sancti
Der Herr ist ein Schatten über deiner rechten Hand
Amen

Vater unser dein ist das Reich
und die Kraft
und die Herrlichkeit
in Ewigkeit
Amen

    General CommentI doubt E Nomine are "religious". Some of their songs are quite... distrubing. And some are plain "satanic".

    General CommentI don't understand much... German? Is it?

    But, more importantly, it's linked to the Anime Hellsing, so I knew it had something to do with Divine spirit.

    General CommentIt isn't linked to Hellsing, E Nomine is a german religious group. the song itself is one of the many prayers that he wrote.

    General CommentThe "Vater Unser" is the Lord's Prayer in german, a literal translation from the original latin. The parts that you don't recognize xzen are probably:

    "In nomine patris et filii et spiritus sancti" - Latin phrase meaning 'In the name of the father, son, and the holy ghost'

    "Vater höre meine stimme/Herr höre meine stimme" - German: 'Lord, hear my voice'

    "Lasset uns beten" - German: 'Let us pray'

    "Der Herr ist ein Schatten über deinem rechten Hand" - German. Whatever this means, it's quite idiomatic. The most meaning I could pull out of it is that 'The Lord is a shadow over your right hand' Did anybody else make more sense out of this?

    General CommentWell, I hope I can explain this to you without adding too many grammatical mistakes, I'm from germany:
    "Der Herr ist ein Schatten über deiner rechten Hand."
    Well... the right hand is in most cases the hand, that does all (or most) the important activitys. With this part of the song, E Nomine is saying that the lord is controlling your right hand (=you).
    I think this is the criticall part of the song which is usually somewhere in those religious song of E Nomine :).
    Hope I was able to help you^^

    (from Wikipedia)

    General CommentI'm not religious myself, but some of the songs are just... beautiful. I know some German (not claiming to know too much), so I can pick out some words, but altogether, I just listen to it because alot of the songs are peaceful, and others just have something to them that make them great songs to listen to.
