1. Salvation now has come to us
through God's free grace and favor.
Our faith on Jesus Christ is set,
who for us all all needs has met.
He is our Intercessor.

2. All honor, blessing, thanks and praise,
for good gifts freely given;
God, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
who seeks to see fulfilled
what He in us has now begun,
to honor His great majesty,
whose name alone is holy.

3. Your kingdom come, Your will on earth
be done as in Your heaven;
give to us our daily bread;
forgive our sins and errors…
lead us not in temptation’s thrall;
save us from evil. Amen!
Good works cannot come to our aid,
nor can they e'er protect us;
