Give us this day all that you showed me -
The power and the glory
till my kingdom comes.
Give us this day all that you showed me -
The power and the glory
till my kingdom comes.
Give me all the storybook told me
The faith and the glory
till my kingdom comes.
And they said that in our time all that's good will fall from grace.
Even saints would turn their face in our time.
And they told us that in our days
Different words said in different ways
Have other meanings from he who says in out time:
Give us this day all that you showed me - . . .
And they said that in our time we would reap from their legacy

We would learn from what they had seen in our time.
And they told us that in our days
We would know what was high on high

We would follow and not defy in our time.
Give us this day all that you showed me - . . .
Faithless in faith
we must behold the things we see.
Give us this day all that you showed me . . .
