In our secret place we pray to You
Where You can only hear,
In reverent awe and with honour too
With respect and godly fear.
‘Our Father in heaven
Hallowed be Your name,’
As we reflect on all Your goodness
Where Your grace and mercy reigns.
‘Your kingdom come, Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven,’
As we become Your hands and feet on earth
And avoid doctrines of leaven.
‘Give us this day our daily bread’
As You provide and feed our soul,
With Your word as it nourishes
That is wholesome to behold.
‘And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors’ too,
When our transgressions You remember no more
As we forgive to make things new.
‘And do not lead us into temptation
But deliver us from the evil one,’
As You guard our mouth and protect our steps
So Your precious will is done.
‘For Yours is the kingdom
And the power and the glory forever,’
There is none like You our dear Lord
And Amen there will be never!
