"The Prayer" | Performed by Heather Headley and Andrea Bocelli
Composed by David Foster and Carol Bayer Sager

I pray You'll be our eyes and watch us where we go
And help us to be wise in times when we don't know
Let this be our prayer as we go our way
Lead us to a place, guide us with Your grace
To a place where we'll be safe

La luce che tu hai - I pray we'll find Your light
Nel cuore resterà - And hold it in our hearts.
A ricordarci che - When stars go out each night,
Eterna stella sei - You are the eternal star
Nella mia preghiera - Let this be our prayer
Quanta fede see'è - When shadows fill our day
Lead us to a place, guide us with Your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe

Sogniamo un mondo senza più violenza - We dream of a world without violence
Un mondo di giustizia e di speranza - A world of justice and hope
Ognuno lo dia la mano al suo vicino - Each gives his hand to his neighbor
Simbolo di pace, di fraternità - Symbol of peace, of brotherhood.

La forza che ci dà - We ask that life be kind
È il desiderio che - And watch us from above
Ognuno trovi amor - We hope each soul will find
Intorno e dentro sé - Another soul to love
Let this be our prayer - Let this be our prayer,
Just like every child - Just like every child
Needs to find a place, guide us with Your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe.

È la fede che - It is faith that
Hai acceso in noi - You lit in us
Sento che ci salverà. - I feel that it will save us.

"Patria est communis omnium parens" - Our native land is the common parent of us all. Keep it beautiful, make it even more so.

Blessed is all of creation
Blessed be my beautiful people
Blessed be the day of our awakening
Blessed is my country
Blessed are her patient hills.

Mweh ka allay!
