The Lord’s Prayer

By Alan Watts - Rockhampton Baptist Tabernacle

Bible and Crown

The Lord’s disciples said to him
“Lord teach us how to pray”.
He gave to them the words of prayer
We know as his today.

Our father up in heaven
Hallowed be thy name.
Acknowledging God’s sovereignty
And we should do the same.

Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done
On earth as heaven above.
Not what we want, but your will Lord
We ask you now in Love.

Give us this day our daily bread
Forgive as we forgive
Those who sin against us
Here on earth now where we live.

Lead us not to temptation
And from evil set us free
For thy kingdom, power and glory
They are yours eternally.
