Hymn for the Year of Faith http://www.annusfidei.va/content/novaevangelizatio/en/annus-fidei/inno-musicale.html



1. 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!
With the saints who are walking with us,
O Lord, we ask:
Adauge, adauge nobis fidem!
Credo Domine, adauge nobis fidem!
(continued after jump)

2. 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!


3. 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!

we follow in your footsteps.
You arise in the morning of Easter,
You for us are life everlasting.

With the humble who wish to be born anew,
O Lord, we plead:
Adauge, adauge nobis fidem!
Credo Domine, adauge nobis fidem!

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!

each day that you give.

You for us are the hope of salvation.

With the world where your kingdom is among us,
O Lord, we cry:
Adauge, adauge nobis fidem!
