A Song Written to Commemorate H.H. Pope Shenouda III on the 1st Anniversary of His Departure

1 – With our love we commemorate
The memory of our Coptic Saint
Teacher; Monk; then Patriarch
Our dear Pope Shenouda

Refrain: O Pope Shenouda, intercede for us,
Before the throne of our Lord Jesus Christ,
And watch over your children

2 – You were born Nazeer Gayed
A simple, humble life you led
You lived a life of peace and truth
Our dear Pope Shenouda

3 – To fast and pray you left the world
Consecrating your life to our Lord
You took the name Antonious
Our dear Pope Shenouda

4 – Enthroned on the See of Saint Mark
Called to be our Pope and Patriarch
Forty years shepherding your flock
Our dear Pope Shenouda

5 – In books and sermons you shared the Word
You taught us the love of our Lord
You spread the faith to all the Earth
Our dear Pope Shenouda

6 – Your words of wisdom, always strong
Remind us to Christ we belong
Your poetry so passionate
Our dear Pope Shenouda

7 –Your tender heart and smiling face
With love, your children you embraced
Your laughter and your words so sweet
Our dear Pope Shenouda

[A virtuous life you led; holding fast to the Lord
A virtuous life you led; spread His love across the world] x2
[All over the world, the gospel was heard]x2
[Pope Ava Shenouda, the Third] x3
