Lyrics

Father in Heaven, hear us today;
Hallowed Thy name be; hear us, we pray!
O let Thy kingdom come, O let Thy will be done,
By all beneath the sun, as in the skies.

Father in Heaven, hear us today;
Hallowed Thy name be; hear us, we pray!
Giver of daily food, Foun­tain of truth and good,
Be all our hearts imbued with love like Thine.

Father in Heaven, hear us today;
Hallowed Thy name be; hear us, we pray!
Lead us in paths of light, save us from sin and blight,
King of all love and might, glorious for aye.
