The Lord’s Prayer

the-lords-prayer

Here is a song about an old and important prayer–a prayer taught to us by a Savior who wanted us to pray well and who hoped that we might glimpse in our praying the potential for God’s will to be accomplished “on earth as it is in heaven.”

While I wrote this song about the Lord’s Prayer twenty years ago, Tara and I (along with Rick Witkowski) just recently reworked it in an effort to keep it fresh in our hearts and minds.  I hope that it helps you to pray on this 2016 Election Day.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Good Father who reigns in heaven

Holiness breathes your name

Your kingdom come, your will be done

On earth as it is in heaven

Give us this day our daily bread

Forgive us our sins as we forgive

Lead us not into temptation’s way

But deliver us now from evil

Yours is the kingdom, power, and glory

Forever and ever the same

And so to these things we now say “amen”

May the prayer of our heart be a song to you

Your kingdom come, your will be done
