Lords Prayer as a nursery rhyme

Here is the modern lords prayer, not a big surprise

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your Kingdom come, 
your will be done, 
on earth as in heaven
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us. 
Lead us not into temptation, 
but deliver us from evil. 
For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours. 
Now and for ever. Amen

Here is a well known nursery rhyme: Incy wincy spider line by line

1. Incy Wincy spider 
2. Climbed up the water spout
3. Down came the rain 
4. and washed the spider out
5. Out came the sun 
6. and dried up all the rain
7. Then Incy Wincy spider 
8. went up the spout again!]

And because I love a challenge with words and @Frsimon laid one down on twitter, here is the lords prayer redesigned into the tune of Incy Wincy Spider in 2 verses.

1. Our Father in heaven,
2. hallowed be your name.
3. Your land and will be done  
4.  on earth just as in heaven
5. Give us our bread today
6 and Forgive us all our sins,
7. as we forgive all of those 
8. who might sin against us. 

1. Please keep us straight and 
2. Lead us not into temptation, 
3. deliver us from evil 
4. Within us and without
5. For the kingdom, the power 
6. and the glory are yours. 
7. Now and for ever. 
8. Amen amen amen.
