Catechism Song #56 – The Lord’s Prayer: Fifth Petition


# Question Answer
118 What is the fifth petition? “And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.”
119 What do we pray for in the
fifth petition?
That God would pardon our sins for Christ’s sake, and enable us to forgive those who have injured us.


The fifth requisition that Jesus
Supplied as exemplary prayer
Requires that we pardon our debtors
And all their disfavour forbear;

Wherefore, Saviour
As we’ve been forgiven help us forgive
Those who’ve wronged us
That true to Your Spirit we live!
