The Prayer

I really love this song - The Prayer. The first version I heard was Josh Groban and Charlotte Church. I fell in love with the lyrics as well as the music. It is a beautiful song.

Just the other day I came across this version of Josh Groban with Celine Dion.

I can't decide which version I like best. I just know I love the song's message. I'll come back tomorrow and put in the Italian translations, for anyone that is interested. Anyway, please enjoy listening to the music in the meantime.

The Prayer

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 dai (The light that you give)

I pray we’ll find your light
Nel cuore restero (Will stay in our heart)
And hold it in our hearts
A ricordarci che (To remind us that)
When stars go out each night
L’eterna stella sei (You are the eternal star)
Nella mia preghiera (In my prayer)
Let this be our prayer
Quanta fede c’e (There is so much faith)
When shadows fill our day
Lead us to a place
Guide us with your grace

Give us faith so we’ll be safe.
Sognamo un mondo senza piu violenza (We dream of a world without violence)

Un mondo di giustizia e di speranza (A world of justice and hope)
Ognuno dia la mano al suo vicino (Everyone gives a hand to his neighbor)
Simbolo di pace e di fraternita (Symbol of peace and brotherhood)

La forza che ci dai (The strength that you give us)
We ask that life be kind
E’il desiderio che (Is the desire that)
And watch us from above
Ognuno trovi amore (Everyone finds love)
We hope each soul will find
Intorno e dentro a se (Around and inside of self)
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
E la fede che (And the faith that)
Hai acceso in noi (You have lit up in us)
Sento che ci salvera (I feel that will save us)

It's nice, huh? So, which version do you like best?

The first time I heard that song was on an awards show...years ago, by Celine Dion and Andre Bocelli. You should take a listen to that one too! He isn't necessarily as powerful vocally as Josh Groban, but there are moments where it give me chills.
I personally like the Celine Dion with Josh Groban one out of the two you have here. Charlotte Church has a lovely voice, but has lost some of her power vocally as she has gotten older. Just my opinion though. Both versions are beautiful.

I like Charlotte Church because she is so rough, and Celine because she is Canadian. Hard to decide.

Personally, I like my shower version the best. Oh yes, I do both parts.
Celine and Josh would have to be a close second. Only because I am in love with Josh Groban. Celine Dion? I could take her or leave her.
