"The Prayer" as written by David W. Foster, Carole Bayer Sager, Tony Renis and Alberto Testa....
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 to dai
I pray we'll find your light
Nel cuore restero
And hold it in our hearts
A ricordarchi che
When stars go out each night
L'eterna stella sei
Nella mia preghiera
Let this be our prayer
Quanta fede see'e
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

Un mondo di giustizia e di speranza
Ognuno dia la mano al suo vicino
Simbolo di pace e di fraternita

La forza che ci dai
We ask that life be kind
E'il desiderio che
And watch us from above
Ognuno trovi amore
We hope each soul will find
Intorno e dentro a se
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
Hai acceso in noi
Sento che ci salvera

    General CommentOh my gosh... This song is beautiful. And let me just tell you, two of my best friends sang this song as a duet for a show @ our school, and im not just saying this b/c i love them, but they were better than Josh and Charlotte. It was freaking amazing... honestly, the entire audience of 400 was totally captivated. Most were brought to tears. Needless to say, a standing ovation came next. But everytime i hear this song, im like, I know people that sing it better.... It still an amazing, amazing song. And performance.

    General CommentActually, it was Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli who is an Italian Tenor. He is blind and talented beyond belief. It is worth hearing this version for his singing alone! The song is in Italian.

    General CommentCeline and Josh DID do this song as well...for a Governor's inauguration if I'm not badly mistaken...The Governor of California. He filled in for Bocelli.
