A. “Hallowed be thy name”; that is, grant us, first, rightly to know thee, [a] and to sanctify, glorify and praise thee, [b] in all thy works, in which thy power, wisdom, goodness, justice, mercy and truth, are clearly displayed; and further also, that we may so order and direct our whole lives, our thoughts, words and actions, that thy name may never be blasphemed, but rather honoured and praised on our account.
