Zoei Toh Sings the Lord’s Prayer

This video of a little girl singing the Lord’s Prayer is one of the nicest things I have seen in a long time. Zoei Isabelle Toh is only 2 years and 8 months old in the video. My favorite parts are when she sings, “And lead us not into temptation,” and also when she starts swinging her arms and conducting herself near the end. Awesome! Thanks to “Mommy” for directing this video and sharing it with the rest of us.

    Too absolutely cute! Thank you for the smile and the beautiful rendition of the Lord’s Prayer.

  2. Ray Fowler says:

    eclexia – You’re welcome! Good things get even better when shared!

  3. Stephani says:

    This is one of the cutest videos I have ever seen.I was amazed at how she could carry the tune and remember all of the words. It was totally awesome!!!!!!

  4. JFC says:

    I may be wrong, but it seems pretty clear to me that this young lady is part of a church that is serious about worship … and liturgical in outlook. Dead liturgy is just that: dead. But living liturgy is the best of all worlds. And it sounds like she has heard this sung for about 140 Sundays in a row.

    Her enthusiasm at “for thine is the kingdom and the power …” is infectious! Indeed, out of the mouth of babes and infants he has ordained praise!

  5. Debra Cannady says:

    Thank you Ray for sharing. Zoei video was forwarded to me from my Sister. I was uplifted by the Holy Spirit through that angelic voice. My husband and I also have a precious Zoë who also is 2-years of age. Zoë is Greek and translates to “Daughter of Life.” Our Zoë is quite the singer also, but Zoei takes the Grand Prize, and The Glory. Many blessings to you and Make It a Great Day!

  6. Ray Fowler says:

    Stephani – I am glad you enjoyed it.

    JFC – Interesting observation. I hadn’t thought about whether her family attended a liturgical church or not. But you’re right, this song is just part of her now – she must have heard it over and over again to be able to sing it like this.

    Debra – How neat that you have a 2-year-old singing Zoë, too. Any plans for a YouTube debut? 🙂

    Thanks all for visiting and commenting!

    Beautiful and inspiring. Very talented. Good job, Mom & Dad.

  8. Paul Matteson says:

    Our Church Pastor played the clip of this “little-angel” singing “The Lord’s Prayer,” for our congregation this morning before we took Holy Communion. Our hearts were warmed and we were thoroughly delighted by her sweet performance. I wonder if she has any idea of how many people’s lives she has touched!!!

    Thank you so much for sharing this discovery.

    Margaret – I am glad you enjoyed it!

    Paul – What a great idea sharing the video before communion. It is neat how God has used such a young child to touch so many hearts. “From the lips of children!”

  10. Toni says:

    I would be embarrassed to reveal how many times I have watched this precious and expressive little girl perform The Lord’s Prayer. I would love to see her sing in person!

  11. Ray Fowler says:

    Toni – I wonder if she sings at her parents’ church? That would be a neat thing to see.

  12. LSCK says:

    Indeed, it is a very inspiring video, but please do not mistakenly assume that The Lord’s Prayer is only sung in liturgical churches! Her family may not be affiliated with a liturgical church. I have never been a part of a liturgical church, and knew this arrangement of The Lord’s Prayer very well, at a very young age. I think the more appropriate observation is one that recognizes this child knows this song as a result of an enthusiastic parent. Is liturgy really important???? Isn’t it our relationship with God through Jesus Christ that matters??? That is what Christ modeled–not whetherwe observed liturgy, dead or alive. (The Pharisees were quite enthusiastic in their form of liturgy. We all know what happened with them.) Knowing Jesus, and freely responding to Him from a heart full of praise, is the best of all worlds.

  13. Ray Fowler says:

    LSCK – I am also from a non-liturgical background. I see the use of liturgy or not mainly as a matter of style, or perhaps degree. Even in the very non-liturgical setting of our church’s worship service, it could be argued that we use some forms of liturgy, from the order of service right down to the songs that we sing. What is most important is that we worship God through Christ from the heart – whether or not we use liturgy in the process.

  14. Jeannine says:

    My heart was filled with joy as I listened to little Zoei sing the prayer, the Lord Himself taught us!
    I am a member of a liturgical chuch and can see in the responses of some a lack of understanding of the liturgy.Christ comes to His Church in the liturgy. There is great joy and awe in liturgical worship. It takes those in worship to the manger bed and joins in the angel’s song. From the manger, we follow the Lord Jesus to the cross and ultimately see the empty tomb and then we get a peek into heaven and sing with all the saints and angel’s at the Lamb’s high feast! How can you critcize this awesome gift? Or how can you suggest it is not a Spirit- filled worship offering by those who participate. To put it down as meaningless ritual ior to come it to the attitudes and self righteousness of the Pharisees is a huge misunderstanding of worship! Before rejecting the liturgy as a
    meaningless act, go to a Liturgical church and ask why they worship as they do. You might be surprised at what you learn and you might even come to love it because you are find this setting fills you with awe at being in the presences of our Holy , Just and mewrciful God, Who in His grace has given Himself that we might have life in Him!

  15. Ray Fowler says:

    Jeanine – Thanks for sharing your passion for liturgical worship with us! There is so much we can all learn from each other in these things.

  16. eddie jones says:

    Just a note to say how thrilling it was to hear this beautiful little girl sing this song. Her parents are to be commended on their encouragement. She seems not only blessed with the gift of song but seems to have some idea about whom she is singing.

  18. Corinne says:

    I have also seen a video of this little girl singing amazing grace. She’s too cute!

  19. Corinne says:

    Oops, I should’ve written that correctly. “Amazing Grace.”

  20. Rhona says:

    Dear Zoei

    You darling girl. You are so clever and beautiful. I watch your clip at least once a week. You are so gorgeous. Thank you Mom for sharing your darling baby with the world. I pray for God’s hand on Zoei as she grows. As she emerges from her cuteness, may she always know that Jesus can be her best friend. I love you so much and I pray for you often. God bless you sweetheart.


  21. Neals says:

    Dear Zoei and parents
    May God Bless you and yours for sharing her with the world.
    We will be watching for her singing in the future.

  22. Carole says:

    Zoei Toh has a group on Facebook.
    Come and join us, and share with
    friends and family so that they can
    be blessed too.

    In His Service,

  23. Ray Fowler says:

    Carole – Thanks for the tip!

  24. Anna Yap says:

    Actually, I go to the same church as she does. Well, she’ll be moving soon, back to Malaysia :[
    But anyway, her father used to be our youth pastor. We are part of the Seventh-day Adventist church.
    Just wanted to tell you all, so you know. xD

  25. Grego says:

    This is the best video ever!!! Oh Praise be to God, what a blessing what a family! Liturgy or not, this child was and I pray is still being brought up in the Lord and has us all so much joy watching her, as I believe she will bring to all.

    With her waving hand command of the last stanza, I just can’t help but imagine what the great choir in heaven will be like? I thank God for Zoei, her parents and for you Ray for posting this… I am going to share it during my next Sunday school class. Let us continue to pray for our children and other parents to follow such commendable path.
