“On earth, as it is in Austin”

"On earth, as it is in Austin” has appeared on bumper stickers and T-shirts since the early 1990s. The prayer normally goes “on earth, as it is in Heaven.” Other slogans have included “On earth, as it is in Texas” and “On Earth, as it is in Luckenbach” Austinite Les Ross takes credit for the phrases.
