                            THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
               (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. Our heav'nly Father, hear
        The prayer we offer now.
        Thy name be hallowed far and near;
        To Thee all nations bow.

        2. Thy kingdom come; Thy will
        On earth be done in love
        As saints and seraphim fulfil
        Thy holy will 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 shall forever be
        Glory and power divine;
        The scepter, throne, and majesty
        Of heaven and earth are Thine.
