The Lord's Prayer in Songs

Last night I was feeling particulary verklempt and spent, so I did the Lord's Prayer with a harmonica. It was really nice. So, I tag anyone still reading my ramblings to let us all know how you would do the Lord's Prayer in songs.

Our Father which art in Heaven
[I've Got a Mansion Just Over the Hilltop]
Hallowed be Thy Name
[Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Sweetest Name I Know]
Thy kingdom come
[Crown Him With Many Crowns]
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven
[Make My Life a Prayer to You]
Give us this day our daily bread
[I Know Whom I Have Believed]
Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors
[Just As I Am]
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
[My Soul has Found a Resting Place]

I attend a COC so a capella

I'd love to hear it sung by someone with a rich Celtic voice.

Was it clear that I meant that I did a whole song for each line of the prayer? KB, you make it sound singular, so I had to ask.

Milly, I gotta tell ya. It sounds like the weirdest thing in the world to me to have overheads and no instruments. But, different strokes.

Codepoke,
When done well it's amazing it gets right to your heart.

I'd love to hear you play sometime.

I love the idea.

Let's see, I might try this:

Our Father in heaven
[Abba, Father]
Hallowed be your name
[Holy, Holy, Holy]
Your kingdom come
[Joy to the world]
Your will be done on earth as in heaven
[Savior, when in dust, to thee]
Give us today our daily bread
[Bread of the World in Mercy Broken]
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us
[Gotta agree with you there: Just As I Am]
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the Evil One
[Christian, Dost Thou See Them?]

You want me to work too hard ... I'm just not that imaginative :)

I had a go and put it on my blog. Something I could do while in end of semester busyness
