1 O Lord, our mighty Father, thou
Who art in heav'n above,
View us, thy children here below,
With pity, grace and love.

2 O may thy great and glorious name,
To all the world be known;
The sacred word, thy pow'r and fame,
Be to all nations shown.

3 Thy kingdom come, and let us know
The pow'r of saving grace;
Increase the christian church below,
In peace and righteousness.

4 Thy holy will be done on earth,
As it is done in heav'n:
Let all who are of human birth,
Obey thy counsels giv'n.

5 Give unto us our daily bread,
And all we need besides:
By thee is ev'ry creature fed,
Thy hand for all provides.

6 Forgive us all our sins we pray;
Our hearts with grace renew;
And that with all our hearts we may
Forgive our debtors too.

7 Guard us in each distressing hour,
When Satan, world and sin,
Attack us with their art and pow'r,
And strive to take us in.

8 From all such evils as these are,
Deliver us, O Lord;
And when temptations we must bear,
Thy aid to us afford.

9 Thine is the kingdom and the pow'r,
And majesty divine,
All praise and glory evermore,
And honours all are thine.
