|1- Hail to my Coptic Church, my pretty
Who welcomes us any time with arms open wide,
We come in to enjoy the treasure stored inside.
2- After two great saints, my church got her name:
St. George the Prince of Martyrs, always carried the flame,
Archimandrite Anba Shenouda, we love him just the same.
3- The angels of my church, bearers of the staff,
Our dear presbyters who care for us and serve,
Lord accept their prayers raised on our behalf.
4- On my way to church I gladly pray my psalms;
As I long to your courts, and my hearts hums.
The swallow has found a nest, here my soul calms.
5- Graciously preserve His Holiness our Pope,
Pontiff Shenouda the third, we lift our hearts up,
Lord listen to our prayers, our eyes do hope.
6- Grant that he remains many years on his throne,
Preaching Your word in truth, and working for union,
With his guidance may all the churches become one.
