Famous quotes containing the word hallowed:

    Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not bring us to the time of trial, but rescue us from the evil one.
    Bible: New Testament, Matthew 6:9-13.

    Fear God, and where you go, men shall think they walk in hallowed cathedrals.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    And we fairies, that do run
    By the triple Hecate’s team
    From the presence of the sun,
    Following darkness like a dream,
    Now are frolic. Not a mouse
    Shall disturb this hallowed house.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
