Lyrics

O dear Saint Anthony
The wondrous worker.
Under your tutelage
I place my hopes.

Behold your suppliant
In solemn prayer.
O dear Saint Anthony, do pray for us!
O dear Saint Anthony, do pray for us!

The saint, the sinner,
The young and elderly
Have you for brother in paradise.
All shout together your praises daily.
