Text by James Montgomery (1771-1854)


Our heavenly Father, hear

The prayer we offer now;

Thy Name be hallowed far and near,

To Thee all nations bow.


Thy kingdom come; Thy will

On earth be done in love,

As saints and seraphim fulfill

Thy perfect law above.


Our daily bread supply,

While by Thy Word we live;

The guilt of our iniquity

Forgive us, as we forgive.


From dark temptation’s power,

From Satan’s wiles defend;

Deliver in the evil hour,

And guide us to the end.


Thine, then, for ever be

Glory and power divine;

The scepter, throne and majesty

Of heaven and earth are Thine.


Thus humbly taught to pray,

By Thy beloved Son,

Through Him we come  to Thee, and say

All for His sake be done.
