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 debts, as we forgive our debtors
And lead us not into temptation,but deliver us from evil
For Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory forever

First Elvis starts rambling about RCA Victor, Sun and a crane.Then he sings a snippet "you better run" before launching in The Lord's Prayer. After screaming/singing Forever he says:"you didn't think I could do it did ya?". I know I can't do it. Amazing performance.
Difficult to give an objective opinion on this one which is just Elvis loosening up for the proper session. Strained in parts seeing what he could do without any enhanced effects. Entertaining with 3 stars as a diversion and 2 stars for a serious release which it is not.
