I am currently in the process of migrating the content shared here to a series of new websites hosted at shirleytwofeathers.com.

As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.

Gypsy Prayers, Chants, and Affirmations

Thank you to the Mother
Thank you to the Father
Thank you to the Living Spirit
within all things.

Here is the Lord's Prayer in the Gypsy Dialect of Transylvania:

Miro gulo Devel, savo hal oté ando Cheros,
te avel swuntunos tiro nav;
te avel catari tiro tem;
te keren saro so cames oppo puv,
sar ando Cheros.
Dé man sekhonus miro diveskoe manro,
ta ierta mangue saro so na he plaskerava tuke,
sar me ierstavava wafo manuschengue saro so na plaskerelen mangue.
Ma muk te petrow ando chungalo camoben;
tama lel man abri saro doschdar.
Weika tiro sin o tem,
tiri yi potea,
tiri yi proslava akana ta sekovar.

And here is the English Translation:

My sweet God,
who art there in Heaven,
may thy name come hallowed;
may thy kingdom come hither;
may they do all that thou wishest upon earth,
as in Heaven.
Give me to-day my daily bread,
and forgive me all that I cannot pay thee,
as I shall forgive other men all that they do not pay me.
Do not let me fall into evil desire;
but take me out from all wickedness.
For thine is the kingdom,
thine the power,
thine the glory now and ever.

May God help us!
May no misfortune happen to me in the road,
and may no one steal anything from me.

And in Transylvanian Gypsy it is:

Te vas del o Del amengue;
te n'avel man pascotia ando drom,
te na hoden pen mandar.

-oOo-

Go with God!
Stay with God!
Go, for God's sake!
Stay, for God's sake!
By God!

Or as a Transylvanian Gypsy would say:

Ja Develehi!
Az Develehi!
Ja Develeskey!
Az Develeskey!
Heri Devlis!
