teach us to pray


OurFatherA couple years back, I started reciting the “Our Father” prayer every day. I would get up and stumble out onto the jogging path, and begin repeating Jesus’ words, “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be thy name…” My combination of NIV and King James was foggy at best, but all the same I began to internalize the meaning of the prayer.

I wrote this melody because I wanted a way of teaching the prayer to my children. It was a particularly proud moment when my son woke up the other night from me recording vocals in the next room. He asked to listen to what I was singing, and a smile came across his face as he listened to the playback. Download the song for free here, or stream it on the player to the right.

May this short tune perpetuate the kingdom and the power and the glory of God in your life.

Our Father in heaven
Holy is Your name
Let Your kingdom come
Let Your will be done
On earth as in heaven
Give us today our daily bread and
Forgive us as we forgive all debts and
Lord lead us not into temptation and
Deliver us from the evil one, for
Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory
Forever, amen.
