Using multiple voices, alternating sides…

Side 1...

Our Father

Who art in heaven

Hallowed be they name

Thy kingdom come

Thy will be done, on earth


Give us this day our daily bread

And forgive us our trespasses

Lead us not into temptation

But deliver us from evil

For thine is the Kingdom, the

Wisdom, the power and the glory

All: Now and forever Amen.

Side 2...

Our Mother

Who are in all the earth

Holy is your truth

May your wisdom come

Your circle be one uniting as it is in heaven and earth

Give us today a nurturing spirit

Heal through us as we forgive those who trespass against us

Lead us into Fullness of life

And liberate all that is good


Presence and the Goodness are Yours

All: Now and forever Amen.
