Music St. Francis

Our Father

I had the privilege of writing and playing music for St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Portland, Oregon in the 1970s and ’80s.

On October 4th, 2015, Feast of St. Francis, the current “folk group” was joined by musicians and singers from the folk group who had performed at the church’s 100th Anniversary in 1981. The celebration was recorded and the resulting album, Songs of St. Francis, is available for download here.

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 all of our sins.
As we forgive those others too.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from all evil.
Yours is the kingdom, yours is the power, yours is the glory now and forever.
Yours is the kingdom, yours is the power, yours is the glory now and forever.
Amen. Amen.
