And so, comes the Slavonic Pope,
all people's brother
Who will bring vitality and rebirth to all.
A choir of angels adorn with graces the throne.
For he will teach love, and not as other leaders
reach for arms.
His sacramental strength will emanate to the world:
The Dove will guide his words and actions
To bring the good news of
Heaven will open in complete accord
Because he stands and unites the world to the
Humanity will embrace in brotherhood to his call,
And the Spirit will reach out to the farthest ends.
