Catechism Song #54 – The Lord’s Prayer: Third Petition


# Question Answer
114 What is the third petition? “Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”
115 What do we pray for in the
third petition?
That men on earth may serve God as the angels do in heaven.


The third great petition Christ gave us to pray
Exhorts us to plead more and more every day
That men o’er the earth from each nation, tribe and tongue
Might seek in their lives for God’s will to be done.

Serve God as angels above
Let earth, through and through,
Be subdued with His love!
