“We know that originally the offertories of the repertoire included a series of verses, just like the introit and the communion, but generally more ornate. Many of these are musical compositions of great beauty. They quickly fell into disuse, and we find them only in the most ancient manuscripts. The only remaining trace of this older arrangement in our present-day liturgy is that of the offertory of the Requiem Mass.”
— Dom Joseph Gajard (1956)
Free Organ Accompaniment "Our Father"
published 7 October 2011 by Jeff Ostrowski

To learn more: Vatican II Hymnal. The New Translation of the Roman Missal by ICEL contains a new adaptation of the Lord’s Prayer. At the Savior’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say: [ He extends his hands and, together with the people, continues: ] Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. [ With hands extended, the Priest alone continues, saying: ] Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. He joins his hands. [ The people conclude the prayer, acclaiming: ] For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and for ever.
