ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This 3-track single features an adaptation of the classic prayer I wrote back in college somewhere around 1981 or 1982. The extra tracks include an instrumental tracks only version and an instrumental tracks plus background vocals version to make it easy for you to sing this song in your church, living room, or wherever else you may be so inclined.

While the song goes back to the early '80's, 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 finally broke it out again after the current Iraq war started when I was playing at various bookstore coffeehouses. It just felt right at the time, and, despite the secular setting, it was quite well received, so I started doing it regularly. I've also heard of its being performed by singers in at least a few churches in other parts of the country since then.

Here is the lyrical adaptation, in case you'd like to sing along:

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