Representative Text

1 Our Father, God, who art in heav'n,
To thy great name be rev'rence given;
Thy peaceful kingdom wide extend,
And reign, O Lord, till time shall end.

2 Thy sacred will on earth be done,
As 'tis by angels round thy throne;
And let us every day be fed,
With earthly and with heavenly bread.

Our shield in all temptations prove,
And every evil far remove.

4 Thine is the kingdom to control,
And thine the power to save the soul;
Great be the glory of thy reign,
Let every creature say, Amen.
