The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done;
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power,
and the glory, forever. Amen.
*ANTHEM Jesus Shall Dwell Among us
The Lord bless and keep you; the Lord make his face to
shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his
