Sri Lankan church prints Tupac rap lyrics instead of traditional prayer

The lyrics in a church bulletin shocked people at a service featuring Christmas carols in Sri Lanka.

Instead of traditional Christian prayers and hymns church-goers found the lyrics of rap legend Tupac Shakur's final hit "Hail Mary."

The church apologized for the mistake. A priest said a young boy working for the printer downloaded Shakur's "Hail Mary" instead of the Christian prayer of the same name.

The rap version of "Hail Mary" contains profanity-laced lyrics about violence and references the N-word.
