Abstract: One bright Sunday morning I went to church, And there I met a man named Lerch. We both did sing in jubilation, For he did show me a new equation.

Two simple derivations of the functional equation of

$\displaystyle \sum\limits_{n = 0}^\infty {\exp [2\pi inx]{{(n + a)}^{ - s}}} $

are given. The original proof is due to Lerch.
