Baba Yetu (The Lord’s Prayer)

Who says video games can’t be beautiful? The song is called “Baba Yetu,” from the game Civilization IV. (One of my favorites.) The lyrics are the Lord’s Prayer, in Swahili. My brothers, who are not exactly the most cosmopolitan (or religious) bunch, love this song.

My mom was surprised when she heard them listening to this.

“This song sounds nice,” she said. “Why are they listening to it?”

I don’t blame her. My brothers usually watch videos about sarcastic smack-talking oranges, things blowing up, and people jumping off roofs and things like that, so this is a noticeable difference for them.
