“Hallowed Be Thy Name.”


Thou great Creator, Father, Friend,

From whom all blessings do descend,

On whom all creatures do depend,

And always will, until the end,

“Hallowed be Thy Name.”


Thou great mysterious “Three in One!”

Who sent to earth thine only Son,

To die for sins that men had done,

And who will save―every one.

“Hallowed be Thy Name.”


For life, and all that gift is worth,

For all the beauty of the earth,

For homes and friends around the hearth,

And all our comforts, joys and mirth,

“Hallowed be Thy Name.”


For love, and all it’s sweet endeavor,

For hearts, that naught on earth can sever,

For friendships, that abide forever,

For vows, that are regarded ever,

“Hallowed be Thy Name.”


For all the melodies of morn,

For all Aurora’s charms, fresh born,

For all the grand, luxuriant skies,

Which noon displays unto our eyes,

“Hallowed be Thy Name.”


For all the beauty we behold,

Just when the summer days grow old;

For all the feathery clouds of gold,

Like fairy islands, manifold,

“Hallowed be Thy Name.”


For twilight’s sweet relief from care,

For glittering stars, and moonbeams fair,

For night, that blessed time for prayer;

And “Nature’s sweet restorer” there,

“Hallowed be Thy Name.”


For all the loveliness of spring,

For all the flowers blossoming,

For birds that in the mornings sing,

And for the bee with dusty wing,

“Hallowed be Thy Name.”


For summer’s beautiful array,

For growing crops, and new mown hay,

For Autumn’s golden harvest day,

And indian summer, mild and gray,

“Hallowed be Thy Name.”


For all the long, long winter nights,

For winter’s charming sunset sights,

For snow’s charming sunset sights,

For snow’s protecting power and might,

And all it’s sweet and dear delights.

“Hallowed be Thy Name.”
