    The Prayer is arranged for solo violin and orchestra; Samuel Lawton plays the solo violin. The Prayer is a vocal duet from the late 1990's that has the sound of a timeless ballad. Naturally, the subject of prayer is fitting for a wedding ceremony, and the lyrics, though somewhat generic and a bit vague at times, ostensibly to not offend any sensibilities, are still quite pleasant and uplifting to the listener at a wedding.

The Prayer was originally recorded as a duet with Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion. It first appeared in the movie "Quest For Camelot" in 1998. Josh Groban joined Celine Dion to sing it in her 2008 TV production "That's Just The Woman In Me." This instrumental recording of The Prayer is ideal for wedding processionals, preludes, or recessionals.


The Prayer Lyrics (Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion version)

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 c’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
