The Lord’s Prayer

Glorious words to raise

Heartfelt supplication

Adorned with praise


The Lord’s Prayer

Jesus spoke on the Mount

Wondrous words

Yea, a Life-giving fount


The Lord’s Prayer

Model it may I

Giving all to my God

My Father on High


Jehovah, my Father

Hallowed is Your Name

Holy, Perfect You are

In Flesh Your Son came


Jesus humbled Himself

Lord, You left Your Throne

To die for Your children

Yes, to bleed for Your own


My heart aches to know

Your pain on Calvary

My Beloved, my Lord

You shed Your blood for me


My love for You, Lord

I shall never contain

Your joy is my joy

Your pain is my pain


All wishes and desires

Jesus, I surrender fully to You

Your words are my food

My work: Your Kingdom True


May Your Kingdom come

Yes, may earth see Your Will

With Your Holy Spirit

Lord, do my heart ever fill


Daily bread, my Beloved

You richly provide

You satisfy every need

As I walk by Your side


For my multitude of sins

Lord, please do forigve

Pierced for my iniquity:

Through Your death I live


Pierced is my own heart

Looking upon Your thorned brow

I live as a sacrifice for You

This, Lord Jesus, I do vow


And fully I forgive those

Who may hurt or offend

Limitless as Your mercy

To all I shall extend


How can I offer less

When You, Lord, died for me?

How can I not give

Mercy complete and free?


Away from all temptation

Lead me, Lord, I pray

Deliver me from evil

Each moment of each day


The Kingdom, Power and Glory

Are Yours forevermore

I rejoice in You, my King

Yes, You I cherish and adore


The Prayer of my Lord Jesus

Embody it forever may I

Giving all to You, my God

To You, my Father on High


The Prayer of my Lord Jesus

Lifted high on the Mount

Oh, wondrous words

Yea, a Life-giving fount


The Prayer of my Lord

Glorious words I raise

I rejoice in You, my God

I sing forever Your praise
