WORLDLY RICHES, FAME, AND SUCCESS
WEREN’T ENOUGH TO LIVE FOR
HE WAS EMPTY
IN THE GOSPEL HE TRIED TO FIND THE ONE
WHO GIVES MEANING TO LIFE, 
THE TRUE SENSE OF LIFE
  
AND THEN ONE DAY HIS MOTHER SPOKE
HE UNDERSTOOD THAT TO BE PERFECT,
PERFECT LIKE JESUS
‘TAKE UP THE CROSS OF MERCY, ARMS OPEN WIDE,
AND FOLLOW JESUS AND STAY BEHIND HIM,
REALLY CHOOSE HIM.
    
WALKING THROUGH THE CITIES HE PROCLAIMED
THE LIVING WORD OF WISDOM
AND THE SPIRIT OF LIFE
EVERY TEPID HEART BURST FORTH WITH FLAMES
THE GOSPEL LIKE A FIRE
BECOMES DESIRE
  
AND THROUGH THE WITNESS OF SAINT PAUL
HE UNDERSTOOD THAT TO BE PERFECT,
PERFECT LIKE JESUS
TO LIVE ONE’S LIFE WITH BURNING LOVE, THE LOVE FOR CHRIST,
AND THROUGH HIS CROSS BECOME A BRAND NEW LIGHT
  
SO RUN WITH YOUR HEARTS ON FIRE
GO, RUNNING TOWARD GOD
TOWARD OTHERS
LIKE I DO
BE TRULY SAINTS, SHINE LIKE SAPPHIRES
GO, RUNNING TOWARD GOD
TOWARD OTHERS
LIKE NO OTHER
COME, RUNNING WITH ME
  
WORLDLY RICHES, FAME, AND SUCCESS
AREN'T ENOUGH TO LIVE FOR
THEY LEAVE ME EMPTY
IN THE GOSPEL'S WORDS I CAN FIND  
A BETTER WAY TO SPEND LIFE
AND MAKE SENSE OF LIFE
  
AND I'LL BE STRONGER, FEAR NO LONGER, YES I'LL TRY
TO BE LIKE JESUS
AND LIKE NO OTHER
JUST LIVE MY LIFE WITH BURNING LOVE, THE LOVE FOR CHRIST,
AND WITH HIS CROSS BECOME A BRAND NEW LIGHT
 
REFRAIN

The Lyrics of the Hymn to St. Anthony Zaccaria 

Saint Anthony Mary, O model of virtues
Our glorious Protector, our homage accept.
As we celebrate you, in heavenly glory,
Our oath of allegiance to you we renew.
Our oath of allegiance to you we renew.


As standard you lifted, the Cross of salvation,
The faithful inviting to fight and to win:
To banish lukewarmness, the worst foe of Christians,
The Church making perfect, rejoicing in Christ.
The Church making perfect, rejoicing in Christ.


The Eucharist preaching, you lover of Jesus,
The means of perfection to souls back you gave.
Will you be more faithful to Christian perfection?
You told them: come, share in the breaking of bread.
You told them: come, share in the breaking of bread.


You took as a pattern Saint Paul, the Apostle,
The Doctor of Nations you followed and loved.
We also your children, with love and in study
Do promise to follow exemplar so great.
Do promise to follow exemplar so great.


Remember O Father, Saint Anthony Mary,
Your family grateful here kneeling in prayer.
Present as your children, to God of all Mercy;
May ever you lead us to heaven above.
May ever you lead us to heaven above.

 Hymn in honor of St. Anthony Mary Zaccaria 

   

Correte Come Matti 
Italian

Era giovane era ricco sai, 
Ma questo non bastava
Alla sua vita.
Nel Vangelo che leggeva lui
Il senso ritrovava
Alla sua vita.
E poi un giorno con sua madre
Lui parlò
Con lei comprese
Che esser perfetto
e stare dietro Gesù Cristo fin lassù
Sulla sua croce
Dietro una voce
La sua voce.

A Cremona e a Milano poi           
A tutti raccontava
Il Suo vangelo
E ogni cuore tiepido con lui
Di fuoco diventava
La fede cresceva.
E poi un giorno lui san Paolo
Incontrò
Cosi comprese
Che esser perfetto
è diventare un solo Spirito con
Dio Con la sua croce
Qui nel cuore mio.

SI CORRETE COME MATTI
E ANDATE VERSO DIO
E VERSO GLI ALTRI
COME ME
E SIATE VERI E GRANDI SANTI          
ANDANDO VERSO DIO
VERSO GLI ALTRI
SIATE SANTI
INSIEME A ME

Sono giovane e anche ricco sai
Ma questo non mi basta
Per la mia vita.
E nel Vangelo che leggeva lui
Voglio ritrovare
Senso alla vita
Cosi un giorno con gli amici
Proverò
Anche a capire
Che essere perfetto
è diventare un solo Spirito con Dio     
Con la sua croce
Qui nel cuore mio. 

 

Run Like Madmen
(English trnaslation)

He was young and rich you know
but this was not enough
in his life
In the Gospel which he read
he found again the sense 
of his life
And one day with his mother
he then spoke
With her he understood
that to be perfect
is to follow Jesus Christ till up there
on his cross 
behind a voice
His voice.
 

Then in Cremona and in Milan
he proclaimed His Gospel
to everyone
And every tepid heart with him
Was inflamed greatly
the faith grew
Then one day St. Paul
he encountered
thus he then understood
That to be perfect
Is to become one Spirit with God
with His cross
Here in my heart.
 

Refrain:

YES, YOU RUN  LIKE MADMEN
AND, GO TOWARD GOD,
TOWARD OTHERS
JUTS LIKE ME
AND YOU HAVE TO BE REAL
AND GREAT SAINTS
GOING TOWARD GOD,
TOWARD OTHERS
BE SAINTS
TOGETHER WITH ME
 
I am young and also rich you know
But this is not enough
For my life
And in the Gospel which he read
I want to find again
The sense of my life
So that one day with my friends I will try
also to understand
That to be perfect
Is to become one Spirit with God
with His cross
Here in my heart.
 
Coda:
Yes, you run like madmen 
 (Yes, you run like madmen)
And you have to be real and great saints
Going toward God
Toward others 
Together with me...
