Shetland's Lord's Prayer

Recorded in the 1770's by George Low. First published in his "A Tour through the Islands of Orkney and Schetland. Kirkwall: William Peace, 1879.".


Fy vor or er i Chimeri. / Halaght vara nam dit.
La Konungdum din cumma. / La vill din vera guerde
i vrildin sindaeri chimeri. / Gav vus dagh u dagloght brau.
Forgive sindorwara / sin vi forgiva gem ao sinda gainst wus.
Lia wus ik? o vera tempa, / but delivra wus fro adlu idlu.
For do i ir Kongungdum, u puri, u glori, Amen.

Have we any idea how the Lord's Prayer would have been said in Norn on the Northern Isles of Shetland?

I think there was a version of the Lord's Prayer from Unst or Fetlar. I don't remember where I could see it though, probably at Londi's website? I have to ask him about that. That version was almost identical to the Foula one, if I remember correctly (but what about -dl-?).

UPDATE: A version of the Lord's Prayer has been recorded on Unst. It's temporarily unavailable, but I'll try my best to get hold of it.

Sounds interesting, is it an attempt to read the norn version, done by somebody from Unst?

Give me the information you got, and i will search for it too

I will be most interested in the Unst version once you've got it.
Cheers
