Guide us with your grace, give us faith so we'll be safe

I thought it was about time to do some blogging again, and what better time than the end of one year and the beginning of another?   I get so much from music and have become a fan of Pentatonix, the leading American a capella group, that is there is no accompaniment as the five members produce all the sounds.

Here for the New Year is their version of 'The Prayer' a song with many versions, but this one really shows their skills and the beauty of the arrangements.  The lyrics are below. 

Let this be our prayer...  and a blessed New Year!

I pray you'll be our eyes   and watch us where we goAnd help us to be wise     in times when we don't knowLet this be our prayer   when we lose our way
Lead us to a place   Guide us with your graceTo a place where we'll be safe 
La luce che tu hai   I pray we'll find your lightNel cuore resterà    And hold it in our heartsA ricordarci che   When stars go out each nightL'eterna stella sei    Oh 
Nella mia preghiera   Let this be our prayerQuanta fede c'è   When shadows fill our days
Lead us to a place   Guide us with your graceGive us faith so we'll be safe
A world where pain and sorrow will be endedAnd every heart that's broken will be mendedAnd we'll remember we are all God's childrenReaching out to touch inReaching to the sky
We ask that life be kind
And watch us from above
We hope each soul will find
Another soul to love
Let this be our prayer -
Just like every child   needs to find a place
Guide us with your grace   Give us faith so we'll be safe
Needs to find a place   Guide us with your graceGive us faith so we'll be safe
Songwriters: Carole Bayer Sager / David Foster
