One Bread, One Body

Hi Everyone,

I have translated a religious song for the Italian Mass in my parish but I'm not too confident in the integrity of the translation. The song is by Father John Foley, "One Bread, One Body." It's very popular in English and would work well for the Italian community here. It is based on St. Paul's
1 Corinthians 10:16-17 Could someone please help?

Grazie mille.

Ecco la canzone:

One bread, one body,
one Lord of all,
one cup of blessing which we bless.
And we, though many,
throughout the earth,
we are one body in this one Lord.

1. Gentile or Jew,
servant or free,
woman or man, no more.

2. Many the gifts,
many the works,
one in the Lord of all.

3. Grain for the fields,
scattered and grown,
gathered to one, for all.

    Hi Renzo and welcome to the Forum,

    Sorry, but we don't provide a free translation service. If you post up your translation, we can take it from there and try and help. :)

    Ciao Renzo and welcome to WRF,

    I'm not sure I understand your request. Which is the original language version, Italian or the English you've posted? Could you clarify this and provide the missing half?

    I would also ask that you take a few minutes to review the forum guidelines, among which you'll find:
    As a general rule, we do not allow proofreading. We consider proofreading to be posting a translated block of text (more than one sentence) with the expectation or hope of having it corrected.

    We encourage threads that focus on a specific question, such as a problematic word, phrase, or construction, as opposed to translation of an entire block of text.
    Seeing as you've just arrived, we'll make a one-time concession and try to help you out, but we first need to see the other language version.

    Grazie per le risposte! Mi dispiace per lo sbaglio. Ecco mia prova:

    Un Pane, Un Corpo

    Un pane, un corpo, uno Signor per noi
    Un calice della benedizione
    E noi che siamo molti, dappertutto
    Siamo un corpo unico in questo Signore

    Gentile o Ebreo, servo o libero
    Donna o uomo mai più

    Molti i regali, molti i lavori
    Unico nel Signore

    Grano per i campi, sparso e coltivate
    Raccolto in unico, per tutti
