Inizio dell'Anno della Fede/Beginning of the Year of Faith 2012-2013



Hymn of the Year of Faith 2012-2013

Pilgrims we, full of expectation,
searching in the darkness.
Lord, you come, revealing the Father,
you for us are Son of the Most High.

Credo Domine, credo!
(I believe, Lord, I believe!)

With the saints who are walking with us,
O Lord, we ask:

Adauge, adauge nobis fidem!
Credo, Domine, adauge nobis fidem!
(Increase, increase in us the faith!
I believe, Lord, increase in us the faith!)

Pilgrims we, lost and despairing
what bread for our journey?
Lord, your Birth feeds us with your light,
You for us are the Morning Star.
Credo, Domine, credo!

With, Mary, the first of all believers,
O Lord , we pray:

Adauge, adauge nobis fidem!
Credo, Domine, adauge nobis fidem!

Pilgrims we, broken and exhausted,
our wounds open still.
Lord, you heal those who seek you in the desert
You for us are the hand that heals.
Credo, Domine, credo!

With the poor who are yearning for help,
O Lord, we implore:

Adauge, adauge nobis fidem!
Credo, Domine, adauge nobis fidem!

Pilgrims we, your cross on our shoulders,
we follow in your footsteps.
You arise in the morning of Easter.
You for us are life everlasting.
Credo, Domine, credo!

With the humble who wish to be born anew,
O Lord, we please:

Adauge, adauge nobis fidem!
Credo, Domine, adauge nobis fidem!

Pilgrims we, gathered by your call
for each new Pentecost.
You recreate the breath of the Spirit,
You for us are the Word of the future.
Credo, Domine, credo!

With the Church which proclaims your Gospel,
O Lord, we invoke:

Adauge, adauge nobis fidem!
Credo, Domine, adauge nobis fidem!

Pilgrims we, thankful and united
each day that you give.
Lord, you guide us on the pathway of life
You for us are the hope of salvation.
Credo, Domine, credo!

With the world where your kingdom is among us
O Lord, we cry:

Adauge, adauge nobis fidem!
Credo, Domine, adauge nobis fidem!
