Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
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.
