What is lord?

Lord

Lord is a deferential appellation for a person or deity who has authority, control, or power over others; a master, chief, or ruler. In only a few cases is "lord" a substantive title in itself, most commonly that of the Lord of the Manor and certain vestigial titles from the age of feudalism such as Lord of Mann, in other cases it is a generic term applied, for example, to persons who hold a title of the peerage or persons entitled to courtesy titles, or to refer to a group or body of peers.

Famous quotes containing the word lord:

    Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
    The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head.
    The stars in the bright sky looked down where He lay—
    The little Lord Jesus asleep in the hay.
    Martin Luther (1483–1546)

    Now I lay me down to sleep,
    I pray the Lord my soul to keep;
    If I should die before I wake,
    I pray the Lord my soul to take.
