To Thee, O Heav’nly Father, our voices now we raise;
Thy name be ever hallowed, with loud and ceaseless praise!
Thy kingdom, may it prosper; oh hasten—let it come;
on earth as now in heaven, so may Thy will be done!
Give us this day, we pray Thee, our daily bread to live,
and pardon our transgressions, as others we forgive.
Then lead us not, dear Father, into temptation’s lure;
deliver us from evil, and make our footsteps sure.
For Thine Lord is the kingdom,
forever and for aye;
the power and the glory
is Thine eternally!
For Thine Lord is the kingdom.
Oh, may Thy will be done.
