"Source of Life"

We have written a new song inspired by the Lord's Prayer. It's meant to help us pray the traditional prayer with renewed interest and passion. The lyrics are by Brian and the music is by Sara. Enjoy!


"Source of Life"

Our Source of Life
You fill the Heavens and the Earth
May all that has breath praise your sacred Name
Throughout all Creation, may your Kin-dom come
And throughout all Creation, may your will be done

as it is in Heaven

Give all people the bread that we need
And forgive our debts as we forgive the debts of all
Lead us away from hatred and injustice and evil
And lead us toward your vision of mutuality

and love and justice

For the Kin-dom and the power and the glory are yours
For the Kin-dom and the power and the glory are yours
For the Kin-dom and the power and the glory are yours

Now and always
Now and always
Now and always



Please note that we use the word "kin-dom" on purpose. We agree with Ada Maria Isasi-Diaz, who says: "The word kin-dom makes it clear that when the fullness of God becomes a day to day reality in the world-at-large, we will all be sisters and brothers, kin to each other."

  1. Hi. This is great. How can I get the sheet music so we can sing this in our church?

    Thanks.
