This is "Our Prayer" as it was meant to be heard on Brian Wilson's lengendary SMiLE album. Carl Wilson, Dennis Wilson, and Bruce Johnston took this track during sessions for 1969's 20/20 album and added vocal overdubs for that album's release. But for SMiLE (which Brian called a "teenage symphony to God"), this track with its a capella madrigal harmonies (the most stunning the group has recorded), it was meant to be that ill-fated (until 2004) album's spiritual invocation.
