Jon Foreman and the Lord’s Prayer

I’m appreciating (for about a year now) Jon Foreman‘s slightly revised version of the Lord’s Prayer as it appears in his song “Your Love is Strong” (2008). The line that traditionally is translated “lead us not into temptation” has new richness to me as Foreman says, “keep us far from our vices.” Those of us who know our own brands of sin well can find significant meaning in this plea.

The entire song is based upon the Lord’s Prayer. I encourage you to check it out. Below is just the bridge. Blessings, Jonathan

Our God in heaven

Hallowed be thy name above all names

Your Kingdom come, Your will be done

On earth as it is in heaven

Give us today our daily bread

Forgive us weary sinners

Keep us far from our vices

And deliver us from these prisons
