Prayer Lyrics

Broadway 2017
Come From Away the Musical - Prayer Lyrics


HANNAH (spoken)
Beulah walks me to church — and when we get there, I light a candle for my son

BEULAH (spoken)
And I do too

KEVIN T. (spoken)
I suddenly realize what that music from my dream —
it was an old hymn from when I was a kid.
I haven’t been to church in years, but for some reason that song was in my head

(sung)
Make me a channel of your peace:
Where there is hatred
Let me bring your love
Where there is injury
Your pardon, Lord
And where there's doubt
True faith in you

HANNAH & KEVIN T.
Make me a channel of your peace
Where there's despair in life
Let me bring hope
Where there is darkness, only light

HANNAH
And where there's sadness

HANNAH & KEVIN T.
Every joy

RABBI
Oseh shalom bim’romav
Hu ya'aseh shalom aleinu
V'al kol yisrael
V’imru, v’imru amen

There is a man here in town. He’s lived here nearly his entire life.
He heard that there was a Rabbi diverted here and he came to find me and tell me his story

EDDIE (ACTOR 11) (spoken)
I was born in Poland, I think. And my parents — they were Jews
— they sent me here before the war started —
I still remember some of the prayers they taught me. As a boy, I was told
I should never tell anyone I was Jewish. Even my wife.
But after what happened on Tuesday — so many stories gone — just like that.
I needed to tell someone

ALI (spoken)
During El-Fagir, when most people are asleep it is easier to pray.
But at Dhuhr, I can feel them watching me. Sometimes I catch them
When they think I’m not looking — and I can see the fear in their eyes

ANNETTE (spoken)
Excuse me? Beulah wanted me to check on you.
The library’s open — for anyone looking for some peace —
and a quiet place to pray Ali lays out a prayer mat and begins to pray

RABBI (& EDDIE, hesitantly)
Ya'aseh shalom (ya’aseh)
Ya'aseh shalom (shalom)
Shalom aleinu v'al kol yisrael
Ya'aseh shalom (ya’aseh)
Ya'aseh shalom (shalom)
Shalom aleinu v'al kol yisrael

BEULAH, HANNAH, KEVIN T & SINGER 10
O master, grant that
I may never seek
So much to be consoled
As to console
To be understood
As to understand
To be loved
As to love with all my soul

Allahu Akbar
Subhaan Rabbia Al-Aala’a
Allahu Akbar
Alhamdulilah

KEVIN T
Make me a channel of your peace
Where there's despair in life
Let me bring hope
Where there is darkness, only light
