I was educated as a Catholic (but am now merely Christian), and was taught 'trespassers'. I'm pretty sure that's what the Baptist church I often went to said, as was said at the Presbyterian church I went to two Sundays ago, so it seems current in at least those in Australia. (I've never heard it said with 'evil one'. (And thou/thee/thine etc. The only difference I know of is 'For thine is the kindgom, the power and the glory' I think in some church I've been too (Anglican perhaps?) and 'For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours, now and for ever' in the Catholic church. And the Catholics don't have it as part of it, but rather say it afterwards only at Mass.) Tristan.
