Sitting in a room
In Padova Italy
Resting in the peaceful emanation
Of the Saint of Padova,
Antonio, patron of the lost,
Hearing of teh carnage in Gaza—
astaghfirullah, God of mercy,
Be here now
My brothers and sisters are crying
My brothers and sisters are dying
When will we learn the commandment
Thou shalt not kill?
God of Abraham
Bring peace to the children of Abraham
Holy mother Eve
Mother of all the living
Hear the mother’s cries
Hear the child’s laments.
San Antonio, patron of children,
May every child sleep in peace
May every child wake in safety.
