about

This is a brand new (in June 2020) remix of my adaptation of the classic prayer. While the song (original music and slightly tweaked lyrics) goes back to the early 1980s, it was only publicly performed a couple of times prior to this millenium. The first time was in the church I attended back in college in Potsdam, New York. Then my brother sang it at my wedding in the Los Angeles area in 1983. It pretty much sat on the shelf after that, but I broke it out again after the most recent Iraq war started. It just felt right at the time, and, despite the secular settings, mainly bookstores and coffeehouses, it was quite well received, so I decided it was time to record it. I finished the recording and released it in 2006. My production tools and techniques have come a long way since then, so I thought it was about time for an updated version.

lyrics

The LORD'S PRAYER
lyrical adaptation and music by Rick Paul

Our Father
Who art in Heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name

Thy Kingdom come
Thy Will be done
On Earth as it is in Heaven

Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us
Forgive us all our sins

And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from the devil

For Thine is the kingdom
Thine is the power
Thine is the glory forever

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory
Forever and ever, amen
(Thine is the kingdom)
Forever and ever, amen)
(Thine is the power
Forever and ever, amen
(Thine is the glory)
Forever and ever, amen
