Bless our Singapore

09 August 2015 – Happy 50th Birthday Singapore!

‘Bless our Singapore’ is a song specially composed and sung by Corrinne May, on behalf of the Catholic Church, for Singapore. The video features Corrinne May and her daughter saying a prayer together for Singapore. In the song, Corrinne gives thanks for the many blessings that has been showered on Singapore and prays for God’s continued blessings on our nation Singapore. This music video also invites its viewers to become “salt and light” to the nation by showing how the mission of early Catholics continues to be carried out by the Church today, as depicted by acts of service given to the people of Singapore.

Lyrics:

O Lord, hear our prayer
Bless this land where we stand
May we be light for our nation
May we be salt for this land
To this land, you sent our Fathers
For the church their blood was shed
They served the island’s sons and daughters
Like the wheat that forms the bread

On this land, you grew a garden
From the toiling of our hands
We thank you Lord for every blessing
Trusting your eternal plan

Holy Spirit light the way
Keep us faithful, this we pray
Till we reach Heaven’s shore
Bless our Singapore

On this land, you choose to feed us
on the altar of our hearts
May we be Christ for one another
Never fear to bear the cross

Holy Spirit light the way
Keep us faithful, this we pray
Till we reach Heaven’s shore
Bless our Singapore

Holy Mary, full of grace
Help us give Him all our days
Till we reach Heaven’s shore
Bless our Singapore

Till we reach Heaven’s shore
Bless our Singapore
