Full Text

1 Our Father, throned in heav'n above,
All glory to Thy name of love.
Thy Kingdom come; Thy holy will

With all we need of promised good;
And freely all our sins remit

3 Defend us from the tempter's ways
Uphold when tried, when fallen raise:
For pow'r is Thine, and boundless reign,
In glory evermore, Amen.
