440. C. M. Anonymous. The Lord's Prayer.
1 O Thou, enthroned in worlds above,
Our Father and our Friend!
Lo, at the footstool of thy love,
Thy children humbly bend.
2 All reverence to thy name be given;
Thy kingdom wide displayed;
And, as thy will is done in heaven,
Be it on earth obeyed.
3 Our table may thy bounty spread,
From thine exhaustless store,
From day to day with daily bread, --
Nor would we ask for more.
4 That pardon we to others give,
Do thou to us extend;
From all temptation, Lord, relieve;
From every ill defend.
5 And now to thee belong, Most High,
The kingdom, glory, power,
Through the broad earth and spacious sky,
Both now and evermore.
