Eternal loving Father, to whom we all belong;
Your name itself is holy; your love surpassing strong.
So come, transform creation; in things both great and small.
Restore the first relation that held before the fall.
The stuff of daily living we ask you to provide.
Our sins that need forgiving, we pray you set aside.
Expect us to do likewise; the sins of others drop.
That love may be triumphant and sin itself might stop.
Don’t put us to temptation; such testing we would fail.
Deliver us from evil, release us from its jail.
The Kingdom, pow’r and glory, as always, yours have been;
Eternal, loving Father, forevermore, Amen.
