Our Father, Thou In Heaven Above

Hymn Writer ~ Martin Luther

Stanza 1:

Our Father, Thou in heaven above,

Who biddest us to dwell in love,

As brethren of one family,

To cry in every need to Thee,

Teach us no thoughtless word to say,

But from our inmost heart to pray.

Stanza 2:

Thy name be hallowed. Help us, Lord,

In purity to keep Thy Word,

That to the glory of thy name

We walk before Thee free from blame.

Let no false doctrine us pervert;

All poor, deluded souls convert.

Stanza 3:

Thy kingdom come. Thine let it be

In time and in eternity.

Let Thy good Spirit e'er be nigh

Our hearts with graces to supply.

Break Satan's power, defeat his rage;

Preserve Thy Church from age to age.

Stanza 4:

Thy gracious will on earth be done

As 'tis in heaven before Thy throne;

Obedience in our weal and woe

And patience in all grief bestow.

Curb flesh and blood and every ill

That sets itself against Thy will.

Stanza 5:

Give us this day our daily bread

And let us all be clothed and fed.

From war and strife be our Defense,

From famine and from pestilence,

That we may live in godly peace,

Free from all care and avarice.

Stanza 6:

Forgive our sins, Lord, we implore,

Remove from us their burden sore,

As we their trespasses forgive

Who by offenses us do grieve.

Thus let us dwell in charity

And serve our brother willingly.

Stanza 7:

Into temptation lead us not.

When evil foes against us plot

And vex our souls on every hand,

Oh, give us strength that we may stand

Firm in the faith, a well-armed host,

Through comfort of the Holy Ghost!

Stanza 8:

From evil, Lord, deliver us;

The times and days are perilous.

Redeem us from eternal death,

And when we yield our dying breath,

Console us, grant us calm release,

And take our souls to Thee in peace.

Stanza 9:

Amen, that is, so shall it be.

Confirm our faith and hope in Thee

That we may doubt not, but believe

What here we ask we shall receive.

Thus in Thy name and at Thy word

We say: Amen. Oh, hear us, Lord! Amen.
