Irish - Verse 6:

Fógraímis dea-scéal beo le lúcháir is le bród,
ar nó Pádraig, fáidh,
a shiúil go spreagúil, croíúil,
dóchasach, misniúil.


Italian Verse 4

Il pane unisce i fedeli
chiamati al banchetto.
Segno d'amor divino
comunione coi santi in cielo.



French:

Title:
Nous ne formons qu’un seul corps

Refrain
Bien que nombreux nous ne sommes qu’un corps.
Nous venons rompre le pain vivant.
Coupe de vie partagée par les nations,
Nourrissant nos âmes et nos corps.

Couplet 1
Rassemblés aujourd’hui à la table du Seigneur
Christ se révèle à nous par sa communion et sa parole

Couplet 2
Notre communion rappelle sa mort, sa résurrection.
Sacrifice vivant qui sauve nos âmes à jamais.

Couplet 3
Et par cette Eucharistie nous devenons un seul corps
Tous témoins de son amour, portons sa Foi vivante dans nos vies.

Couplet 4
Ce pain unit les baptisés appelés au grand festin.
Un signe de l’amour divin, la grande communion avec les saints.

Couplet 5
En retournant chez nous le cœur ardent d’une joie
nouvelle, efforçons nous maintenant de vivre l’appel du Christ.

Couplet 6
Tel Patrick le prophète suivant ce même chemin
Proclamons l’Évangile, partageons sa parole d’Amour.
