The Prayer - Celine Dion Andrea Bocelli

When I was in Rome last night I happened to pass by an awesome looking toy store and ventured in. While I was in there I noticed the song that was playing in the background (I always do when I'm in a shop or a restaurant etc) and couldn't quite put my finger on what song it was. At the time I didn't think to ask someone what it was... I was sure it was by Andrea Bocelli and sure enough I found it.

It's The Prayer by Celine Dion Andrea Bocelli. The version I heard was solely by Andrea though. I'm not religious but I think it's such a beautiful song. Especially in both English and Italian. I used to think that French was the most beautiful sounding language in the world but after having spent a few days in Italy I'd say now it has to fight it out for the title with Italian :P

The Prayer (duet with Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli) lyrics

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, when we lose our way
Lead us to the 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
Nella mia preghiera

[Let this be our prayer]
Quanta fede c'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
Un mondo di giustizia e di speranza
Ognuno lo dia la mano al suo vicino
Simbolo di pace, di fraternità
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
Need to find a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe
È la fede che
Hai acceso in noi,
Sento che ci salverà

and a version by the young Charice and Gianluca Ginoble
