455. Our Heavenly Father, Hear

1 Our heav'nly Father, hear
The prayer we offer now.
Thy name he hallowed far and near;
To Thee all nations bow:

2 Thy kingdom come; Thy will
On earth be done in love
As saints and seraphim fulfil
Thy holy will above.

3 Our daily bread supply
While by Thy word We live.
The guilt of our iniquity
Forgive as we forgive.

4 From dark temptation's power,
From Satan's wiles, defend.
Deliver in the evil hour
And guide us to the end.

5 Thine shall forever be
Glory and power divine;
The sceptre, throne, and majesty
Of heaven and earth are Thine.
