Listen to my prayer, Lord! Do not let me perish!
I need you as my teammate whom I deeply cherish!
Don’t let the good remain unpaid and be envious
in this greedy world where everything is perfidious!
Help me, Lord, to stay for eternity in your cathedral!
Let me see my children well, protect them from evil!
Do not let them fall into the panic of this society,
but to trust, to believe in high-aspirations with piety!
Raise me up, Lord, pick my heart up from the floor!
Don’t let my words be spoken for nothing, like before!
Give my mother and my sister good health, if you could,
to see them happy here in my neighborhood!
Catch me, Lord, if I should ever fall again!
Do not let me get into dreadful Satan’s hell!
Leave me here with my both feet on the ground,
let me see the denouement of my life! Now I’m found!
Teach me, Lord, the secret of two gathered hands!
Touch my soul with prayers that are so intense!
Have mercy on me, give me strength to bear my cross,
to find out where peace and serenity are! Not to get lost!
