The Lord’s Prayer / Part 2

146 – The Lord’s Prayer / Part 2

Yesterday I posted about the anthem “The Lord’s Prayer,” published by Abingdon Press. It was written by Mark Miller and Laurie Zelman, words adapted from Matthew 6:9-13. And yesterday I wrote about the usual line “lead us not into temptation” from Luke, and Matthew writes “And do not bring us to the time of trial, but rescue us from the evil one.” So if you want to catch up, read yesterday.

My comment on the anthem for today are the words we say at the very end of the Lord’s Prayer—”…for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.” And of course they are not in either Matthew or Luke. The New Interpreter’s Bible refers to 1 Chronicles as the place where this doxology comes from.

Mark Miller and Laurie Zelman made one significant change in this doxology. Instead of saying “kingdom,” they say “kin-dom.” In both the anthem and the “Worship & Song” it actually does say “kingdom,” but Mark explained at a workshop last year in Ohio that he intended it to say “kin-dom” since that is what we strive for—to be kin, each of us one to another. (Possibly, Abingdon read what Mark sent in as a typo and changed it. Now Mark says that the way it is printed is a typo.)

So I say and sing, “For thine is the kin-dom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.”
