The Prayer from "Quest for Camelot"

This song was written for the 1998 movie Quest for Camelot, and performed as a duet by Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli. It won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song. I have played this piece for wedding receptions, parties, and for wedding ceremonies (as prelude, interludes, and processionals).

This piece can be played on pedal harp or lever harp.


Lyrics (English & Italian)

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 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
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 dia la mano al suo vicino
Simbolo di pace, di fraternità
La forza che ci dà

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
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
