The Prayer (Duet with Andrea Bocelli)


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
I pray we'll find your light, and hold it in our hearts
When stars go out each night, remind us where you are
Let this be our prayer, when shadows fill our day
Help us find a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe
A world where pain and sorrow will be ended
And every heart that's broken will be mended
And we'll remember we are all God's children
Reaching out to touch you
Reaching 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
Who 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 grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe

(Carol Bayer Sager / David Foster)

that's an emotional duet: two of the best voices in the world joined together! I really wish Celine could record even other duets with some italian artists, such as our amazing Laura Pausini! it would be the best duet ever recorded! Wink

My father and I love this song. I remember Celine and Andrea singing it on the Oscars. My father got sad when it didn't won it.


Merry Christmas Celine Sexy

Love this amazing duet Smile

My father-in-law was a big fan of Celine's. He died of a sudden heart attack, and this is the song that was played at his funeral. It fits a man who was so loving and caring to everyone who knew him. It gave me strength and hope in a time of terrible pain and sorrow. I know that my precious father-in-law will be watching over us from Heaven and that we'll see him again. He was a strong Christian and his faith was even stronger.

This song reminds me that God is watching over us all of the time.

I dedicated this song to my sister, who passed away when I was younger. Whenever I listen to this song, it makes me feel like she is watching over me and guiding me.

This song reminds me of a loved one that passed away shortly before Christmas. This song has has helped me through the rough times, when I wished she was here with me. Just knowing that she is watching us from above is very comforting. I will continue to smile through my tears each time I hear it.

This song is beautiful. Celine and Andrea Bocelli are a perfect blend of voices. The orchestral arrangement is superb. When I listen to this song on the stereo, I feel transported. I feel so peaceful. The words are also very touching.

This song I first heard in the movie Quest for Camelot. It's a beautiful song which for me means that the only guidance we can receive is from our heavenly Father to watch over us. I know that He will do the best job.
