An Anthem of WYD Anthems

Can you list the names of all the World Youth Day official songs? Here is a handy way to remember them... with thanks to Fr. Johny Arattukulam from Sydney.

An Anthem of WYD Anthems

‘Resta qui con noi’ sang we in Rome 1985,
‘Un Nuevo Sol’ was in Buenos Aires,
‘Somos Los Jovenes’ Santiago, Spain,
‘Abba Ojeze’ in Jasna Gora, Poland.

‘We are one Body’ Denver, USA,
Manila aired ‘Tell the world of His love’,
‘Maitre et Seigneur’ echoed Paris,
All sang together ‘Emmanuel’ in Eternal City.

‘Light of the World’ shouted Toronto,
‘Venimus Adorare Eum’ in Cologne,
‘Receive the Power’ chanted we in Sydney,
‘Firmes en la Fe’ was in Madrid.

Now we all march towards,
Christ the Redeemer, who said once,
‘Go and make disciples of all nations’,
Yes, we go to Rio de Janeiro in 2013.
