From the state of Bahia came a knight
Who by Jesus was called to the fight
To defend the weak against the might
And on this planet to spread light.
Still very young he heard a voice
Reminding him of his choice
A knight of goodness he should be
“God I’m here to serve Thee.”
With love and solicitude
He conquers the multitudes
His sound voice reaches the mind
And in it peace we find.
He brings us hope
Through lessons that help us to cope
It is Jesus once again talking
It is Jesus’s servant among us walking.
Go forth oh dear knight
Let shine upon us your bright light.
Take us to heaven’s height
With you, in Jesus we unite.
