What does the Lord’s Prayer and “Away in a Manger” have in common?

Try singing this to “Away in a Manger”.  We plan to use it this coming Sunday (12/14) but it would work well for a 12/24 or 12/25 service as well.

 

Our Father in heaven, all praise to your name!

Your kingdom among us, your will done the same

By mortals and angels. Come, Lord, reign alone;

Oh, hear us and bless us from heaven’s high throne.

 

The bread that we yearn for provide us each day;

As we forgive others, our sins take away;

In times of temptation, to lead us be near;

From evil deliver your children most dear.

 

For yours is the kingdom; o’er all things you reign.

And your is the power; all things you maintain.

To you be the glory, resounding again

From all of creation, forever! Amen.

    Great! I write new words to familiar tunes all the time because there are not enough hymns for Advent and Christmas that people really know.
