The Pontifical March

Hail, O Rome
Eternal abode of memories;
A thousand psalms and a thousand altars
Sing your praises

     CHORUS:
     City of the Apostles,
     Mother and guide of the elect,
     Light of the nations
     And hope of the world!

Hail, O Rome
Your light will never fade;
The splendor of your beauty
Disperses hatred and shame.

     Repeat Chorus

The Pontifical Hymn

Rome immortal, city of martyrs and saints,
Immortal Rome, accept our praises.
Glory in the heavens to God our Lord
And peace to the men who love Christ!

To you we come, angelic Pastor,
In you we see the gentle redeemer.
You are the holy heir of our Faith,
You are the comfort and the refuge of those
who believe and fight

Force and terror will not prevail,
But truth and love will reign
