Our Father, Throned in Heaven Above

Representative Text

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

2 Give us this day our daily food
With all we need of promised good;
And freely all our sins remit
As we our debtors freely quit.

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.
