Gloria ... Gloria ...

Two! Three! Four!


I try to sing this song, I

I try to stand up

But I can't find my feet

I try, I try to speak up

But only in you I'm complete


Gloria en te domine

Gloria exultate

Gloria, Gloria ...

Oh Lord, loosen my lips


I try to sing this song, I

I try to get in

But I can't find the door

The door is open

You're standing there

You let me in


Gloria en te domine

Gloria exultate

Oh Lord, if I had anything

Anything at all, I'd give it to you

I'd give it to you


Gloria en te domine

Gloria, Gloria

Gloria en te domine

Gloria, Gloria


Gloria en te domine

Gloria





~~*~~

One of the greatest anthems ever written.

The power of this song cannot be underestimated.

As I understand it, Bono composed it in less than half an hour,

desperate to complete October, the album it is included in.


The reaching, the effort, the spirit!

It exults and cries at the same time.

It's impeccable and poignant and deeply authentic.
