About the work:
Sung in Haitian Creole, ‘Dominus Vobiscum is Latin for “The Lord be with you”. This work urges us to seek God within us. The central theme of the poem speaks of the Divine Presence in everyone, of God in the depths of our hearts.


English Translation of Haitian Creole text:

The Lord be with you

The Lord is with us,
He is among us,
He is in the depths of our hearts,
Amen, Amen, Alleluia.

Since the beginning of time
We have been searching, seeking, asking:
When will the light come, at last, to deliver us?
The light of peace, 
The light of deliverance,
The light of truth,
The light of joy,
The light of hope,
The light of love,
The light of life.

When at last?

Today, let us all sing:
“Dominus vobiscum”
The Lord is with us,
He is among us,
He is in the depths of our hearts,
Amen, Amen, Alleluia.
 
Search, seek, ask:
He is among us;
Search, seek, ask:
He is in the depths of our hearts.
 
Amen, Amen, Alleluia.
