Luther's Evening Prayer (Chant)

Christina Harman


“I thank you, my Heavenly Father, ...” is a familiar prayer that Martin Luther composed for Christians to say each evening before sleeping.

Composition Note

Luther’s Evening Prayer was first in the series that Pastor Samuel Gullixson asked me to write. I modeled it after the style of The Lord's Prayer chant in the Evangelical Lutheran Hymnary. Luther once remarked that “Music is a very fine art. The notes can make the words come alive.” It is my hope that the notes do so and only serve to point back to the text.
