Default Re: WYD flash mob lyrics

I am from Rio, living in the US. I just watched the video of the Bishops rehearsing the Flash Mob to greet Francis, and here are the lyrics in Portuguese and English:

Seja bem vindo, bem vindo entre nós
Que coisa boa ouvir tua voz
É uma alegria poder te encontrar

Falo por mim e por nossos irmãos
Falo do fundo do meu coração
O seu sorriso é tudo de bom!

Refrain:
Vem, abra os braços como o Redentor
Tua benção Francisco nos tráz
Mais um raio de luz, esperança, de amor e de paz
De amor e de paz!

In English (with comments in red to explain the full sense of the word in portuguese):

Be welcome, welcome amongst us!
How great it is to listen to your voice!
It is a joy to be able to meet you! (more than meet, encounter)

I speak for myself, an for (in behalf of) our brethen.
I speak from the depths of my heart (Brazilian are very intense!)
Your smile is "everything'' (the idiomatic expression "tudo de bom" can also be translated as cool, great)

refrain:
Come, open your arms like the "Redeemer"(reference to the Rio statue)
Your blessing Francis is bringing us
One more ray of Light, Hope, Love and Peace
of Love and Peace!

Lyrics, music and dance "copyright" of Paróquia São Joaquim (Saint Joachim Parish apparently in São Paulo). It was not during Mass, enjoy!

Muito legal. Acho que sua letra está melhor porque tem umas explicações e contexto. Também falo Português, mas como não sou do Brazil não tinha pegado a referência ao "Rendentor". Obrigado

And the ultra cute Bishops rehearsal:

Viva o Rio, o Brasil e a Igreja Católica! Viva o Redentor!
