ABBA DABBA DOO
This began as a new tune for a text on the Lord’s Prayer by Thomas Troeger called “Let All Who Pray the Prayer Christ Taught.” It gives this 6 verse text some breathing room, creating more space to pray the song. It’s available here for others who would like to write new texts to it. Above is the boring computer playback; belong is a demo using Troeger’s text (from back when I was just learning how to record).
This is an orphan tune, waiting to be adopted by a text to call its own. If you write lyrics for this melody or pair it with an existing text, please report its use to CCLI or OneLicense and let me know how you’ve used it.
