Looking for the version that was the 1st video I uploaded online in 2009, I viewed many on Youtube and it was hard to choose just one for this post on the occasion of the National Day of Quebec celebrated in the name of John the Baptist, the forerunner to Christ.
Most Quebecois and Canadians no longer practice the Faith.
Originally, I chose another version mainly because of a moving gif of a Dove featured in it, the Bird/Symbol of Peace that settled on Jesus when the Spirit of Christ entered him while being baptized by John in the Jordan River.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness did not understand it.
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
That was the true Light, which lights every man that comes into the world.
He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world did not know him.
He came to his own, and his own did not receive him.
But as many as received him, to them he gave power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
This is another video version of The Prayer with Celine and Josh Groban. The visuals and the melody of voices are also outstanding.
The Prayer is so inspiring to me, I have to include these other versions, also with beautiful visuals.
