The Prayer quest for camelot


The Prayer is the song from the Warner Bros. 1998 animated film Quest for Camelot. It was sung by Lady Juliana voiced by her singer Celine Dion. The popular song was written by Carole Bayer Sager and David Foster. Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli duet together and the song was featured in Celine Dion's Christmas album These Are Special Times and the first from Bocelli's album Sogno, and was released as a promotional single on March 1, 1999. Andrea Bocelli sung this as a solo version which is heard in the film's end credits.

The song won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1999 and a Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals in 2000.

SequenceEdit

As Lady Juliana is held hostage by Ruber's army, she sings that her prayer will watch over Kayley and that she will be in a safe place as Kayley rides off on her horse to the forbidden forest to search for Excalibur (after overhearing Ruber and the Griffin's conversation of Excalibur's current location).

LyricsEdit

Julianna: I pray you'll be my eyes
 And watch her where she goes
 And help her to be wise
 Help me to let go

 Every mother's prayer
 Every child knows
 Lead her to a place
 Guide her with your grace
 To a place where she'll be safe

 Lead her to a place
 Guide her with your grace
 To a place where she'll be safe

I pray you'll be my eyes
 And watch her where she goes
 And help her to be wise
 Help me to let go

 Every mother's prayer
 Every child knows
 Lead her to a place
 Guide her with your grace
 To a place where she'll be safe

 I pray she finds your light
 And holds it in her heart
 As darkness falls each night
 Remind her where you are

 Every mother's prayer
 Every child knows
 Need to find a place
 Guide her to a place
 Give her faith so she'll be safe

 Lead her to a place
 Guide her with your grace
 To a place where she'll be safe

Celine Dion: 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, when we lose our way
 Lead us to the place, guide us with your grace
 To a place where we'll be safe

Andrea Bocelli: La luce che tu hai
Celine Dion: I pray we'll find your light
Andrea Bocelli: nel cuore restera
Celine Dion: and hold it in our hearts.
Andrea Bocelli: a ricordarci che
Celine Dion: When stars go out each night,
Andrea Bocelli: eterna stella sei

Andrea Bocelli: Nella mia preghiera
Celine Dion: Let this be our prayer
Andrea Bocelli: quanta fede c'e
Celine Dion: when shadows fill our day

Andrea Bocelli: Lead us to a place,
Celine Dion: guide us with your grace
Both: 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, di fraternita


Andrea Bocelli: La forza che ci da
Celine Dion: We ask that life be kind
Andrea Bocelli: e il desiderio che
Celine Dion: and watch us from above
Andrea Bocelli: ognuno trovi amor
Celine Dion: We hope each soul will find
Andrea Bocelli: intorno e dentro se
Celine Dion: another soul to love

Both: Let this be our prayer
Celine Dion: Let this be our prayer,
Andrea Bocelli: just like every child
Celine Dion: just like every child

Both: Need 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
