We are happy to share with you the instructional video and the musical score of the melody of our new Lord's Prayer.

This is one of the new songs we have composed, as the Philippine church prepares to adopt the new English translation of the Roman Missal in Advent 2012.

You may share this video and the score with your communities, and begin using the music in your liturgies.

And please join us when we launch the CD and the songbook of Light From Light: Songs for the New English Translation of the Roman Missal, on Saturday, September 29.

The CD and the songbook contain full choral arrangements of the Lord's Prayer and the other new Mass responses and songs.


Many of us have been using a less formal, vernacular translation of the Lord's Prayer in the Philippines, for many years.

While this text of this Lord's Prayer is not a new translation, it restores a classic rendition of the Lord's Prayer, adapted from the 1162 Anglican Book of Common prayer and published in the 1928 Prayer Book of the Episcopal Church in the United States of America and in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

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, 
and lead us not into temptation, 
but deliver us from evil.

- Catechism of the Catholic Church. Part 4, Section 2: The Lord's Prayer "Our Father!" 2759-2760

The primer on the new Mass translation by the Archdiocese of Manila says:

With this prayer he gave us more than his own self: he grants to us the gift of claiming his Father as our own. It is a prayer we should recite in the course of the day without tiring or repeating it. The Our Father is a prayer for all seasons. It has everything we need to tell the Father when we speak to him. Our Lord composed it that way, so that we may pray it in any circumstance, or when we want to pray but cannot find the right words to say.

The Lord's Prayer is said during Holy Mass in preparation for Holy Communion.
