About sing-prayer.org

Those who by Christ’s mercy are granted heaven, will sing their eternal praises, in their delight at seeing the beatific vision of God, face to face, in song.

One day I’m going to join the heavenly choir, and I’m going to sing, and never get tired. And then I’m going to sing, somewhere around God’s altar; and I’m going to shout, ‘All my troubles are over!’ You know I’ve got to thank God, thank Him for being, so good to me!

The prayer-songs on this site are nearly all more than a century old, from the time before the Council when Catholic hymns still dared to risk offending Protestants with the unambiguous presentation of the distinctive truths of the Catholic faith.

Nearly every topic is centered on audio-podcast tracks of piano/keyboard music without vocals (but with accompanying printed lyrics), to support your singing your prayers or lessons.

This Our Father keyboard track has an obvious note-patch, a tone that appears to have been pasted in, because that important note wouldn’t come out enough (on my $15 thrift-store keyboard) to help you sing the song–the lead-in note to the fourth of four phrases, on the first-line word “In”, as in, “In Heaven”. It’s not supposed to be a musical masterpiece, it’s supposed to be like a member of your extended family playing piano for you, as one did for my Mother, as a child, before radio came out in 1923.

This site provides portable, personal prayer-liturgy, scalable from the private, singing alone in one’s bedroom, to large group events in a public facility, audio-video projectable and led in song by a single vocalist supported by the “karaoke” keyboard tracks.

We gain ever increasing assent to the truths of Christ’s faith by regularly repeating them in hymns sung with our whole hearts, minds and voices, making a place for the Spirit of Truth to abide with us within our very beings, and banishing morbid, fallacious and sinful, thought, speech and action by continually centering our hearts on Jesus and Mary.
