The Lord's Prayer

1. Our Father in heaven,

We hallow thy name;

May thy kingdom holy

On earth be the same;

Oh, give to us daily

Our portion of bread;

It is from thy bounty,

That all must be fed.

2. Forgive our transgressions.

And teach us to know

The humble compassion

That pardons each foe;

Keep us from temptation,

From weakness and sin,

And thine be the glory

Forever! Amen!

An Evening Prayer

1. Before I close my eyes in sleep,

Lord, hear my evening prayer,

And deign a helpless child to keep,

With they protecting care.

2. Though young in years, I have been taught

Thy name to love and fear;

Of thee to think with solemn thought,

Thy goodness to revere.

3. That goodness gives each simple flower

Its scent and beauty, too;

And feeds it in night's darkest hour

With heaven's refreshing dew.

4. The little birds that sing all day

In many a leafy wood,

By thee are clothed in plumage gay,

By thee supplied with food.

5. And when at night they cease to sing,

By thee protected still,

Their young ones sleep beneath their wing,

Secure from every ill.

6. Thus may'st thou guard with gracious arm

The bed whereon I lie,

And keep a child from every harm

By thine own watchful eye.
