OUR heavenly Father, hear
   The prayer we offer now;
Thy name be hallowed far and near,
    To Thee shall all flesh bow.
2      Thy kingdom come! Thy will
    On earth be done in love,
As saints and seraphim fulfil
    Thy perfect law above.
3      Our daily bread supply,
    While by Thy Word we live;
The guilt of our iniquity
    Forgive, as we forgive.
4      From dark temptation’s power,
    From Satan’s wiles defend;
Deliver in the evil hour,
    And guide us to the end.
5      Thine, then, for ever be
    Glory and power divine;
The sceptre, throne and majesty
    Of Heaven and earth are Thine.
James Montgomery, 1771-1854
