I am studying the Greek prayer "Πάτερ ημών" (Lord's prayer - Our Father).  I would like to know how it really sounds in Greek.

Also, is there a translation in English available?

This is how the "Πάτερ ημών" prayer sounds in Greek (this recording is in normal pace):

This is another recording of the same prayer, with slower pace, so a non Greek speaker can distinguish the words better:

Here is the text of the prayer (Greek Monotonic):

Πάτερ ημών ο εν τοις ουρανοίς
αγιασθήτω το όνομά σου
ελθέτω η βασιλεία σου
γενηθήτω το θέλημά σου, ως εν ουρανώ, και επί της γης
τον άρτον ημών τον επιούσιον δος ημίν σήμερον
και άφες ημίν τα οφειλήματα ημών, ως και ημείς αφίεμεν τοις οφειλέταις ημών
και μη εισενέγκης ημάς εις πειρασμόν, αλλά ρύσαι ημάς από του πονηρού
Αμήν.

Here is a translation of the prayer in English:

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Amen.
