Ae Adar Nín (Tolkien's Pater noster in Sindarin) is Tolkien's Sindarin translation of most of the Lord's Prayer. He left the last two lines untranslated, but his notes show that he intended to use úthaes as the word for temptation (cognate with Q. úsahtië). To give the look of the final portion of the prayer being "lost". The poem can be read in Vinyar Tengwar 44 on pages 21-30.
