Bless Our Show is a song from the stage adaptation of Sister Act.
The sisters are unable to sleep due to their nerves for the day they perform before the Pope, so they ask Deloris to perform a blessing to calm them. Deloris comes to see how much she has come to care for the girls. This is all interrupted when Mother Superior informs Deloris of Eddie coming to retrieve her.
Deloris: Bless our show,
Bless our music,
Bless the songs we're gonna sing.
Bless the stage that we'll stand on
When we stand and do our thing.
Bless each line, every number,
All the steps that we've rehearsed.
And allow us, somehow to be great,
At the worst.
Bless each note,
And each lyric,
Help us try to stay on key.
Bless the lights
And the soundboard,
Bless our choreography.
From the top of the downbeat
'Till the final curtain call-
Bless the day,
Bless our show,
Bless it all!
Well that's our prayer everybody, good night and god bless!
Mary Patrick: No, no, no, no, no, wait, Mary Clarence! Wait! There's still so much more to pray for!
Deloris: Well, what'd I leave out? I blessed the soundboard for Christ sakes!
(Sung) Mary Patrick: Bless our props!
Mary Wiligis: Bless our costumes!
Mary Robert: Give our sequins extra glitz!
Mary Kiara: Bless our moves!
Make 'em killer!
Mary Lazarus: Let us nail the funky bits!
Mary Alban: Bless our vibe!
Mary Kateri: Give us mojo!
Mary Josephat/Mary Emebert: Help our booties shake on cue!
Deloris: Let us rest when we're stressed,
So our best shines through!
Nuns: Bless our riffs and arrangements!
Let our solos truly rock!
Mary Robert: Help us tear up the sucker,
'Till they hear us down the block!
Nuns: Let us lay down the boogie
'Till its bouncing wall to wall!
Some nuns: Bless our mics!
Other Nuns: Bless our amps!
All Nuns: Bless it all!
Let our voices gleam and glisten!
Grant us strength to sing our best!
And let all of those who listen
Feel they too are truly blessed!
Deloris: Bless our love and our friendship,
May it somehow be enough.
Most of all, keep us smiling
While we're strutting all our stuff.
Let us lift one another
'Till the spirits fill the hall.
