"The Lord's Prayer" is, of course, the prayer prescribed in the Bible. Elvis's version is described in the sleeve-notes of "A Hundred Years From Now" as being an "Informal Performance"—it most certainly is!
In 1884 Emile Berlin himself recorded "The Lord's Prayer" on an Edison cylinder for his own purposes. In about 1889 he recorded the prayer again, this time on a 5-inch demonstration disc to show the benefits of his own recording process.
The first commercial recording of this prayer seems to have been made by David C. Bangs some time before May 1895 and was issued on at least three different one-sided Berliner 7-inch discs: Berliner 617, together with "Sweet Bye And Bye" as its additional title (presumably two songs on one side); Berliner 618, with "Nearer My God To Thee" as the additional title; Berliner 618(a), with Psalm 100 as the additional title.
(The disc shown—rather than the label—is Berliner 618a.)
