1. Heavenly Father,
2. May all revere thee,
3. And become thy dutiful children and faithful subjects.
4. May thy laws be obeyed on earth, as perfectly as they are in heaven.
5. Provide for us this day, as thou hast hitherto daily done.
6. Forgive us our trespasses, and enable us to forgive those who offend us.
7. Keep us out of temptation, and deliver us from evil.Taken from In God We Trust: The Religious Beliefs and Ideas of the American Founding Fathers, edited by Norman Cousins (Harper & Brothers: 1958), pg. 21.
