Baba Yetu

The haunting and highly-acclaimed opening theme to the 2004 computer game Civilization IV, the lyrics to Baba Yetu are in fact a modified version of the Lord's Prayer ("Our Father, who art in Heaven...") sung in Swahili. This was likely a nod to the series-first introduction of Religion as a playable element in the game.
