#1027 Cuando el Pobre
(When the Poor Ones)
words by Jose Olivar and Martin Seltz
music by Jose Olivar and Miguel Manzano
Cuando-el pobre nada tiene y-aún reparte,
cuando alguien pasa sed y-aguanos da,
cuando-el débil a su-hermano fortalece,
va Dios mismo-en nuestro mismo caminar
va Dios mismo-en nuestro mismo caminar.
When the poor ones, who have nothing,
still are giving;
When the thirsty pass the cup, 
water to share;
When the wounded offer others strength and healing:
We see God,
here by our side,
walking our way.
When compassion gives the suffering consolation;
When expecting brings to birth
hope that was lost;
When we choose love, not the hatred all around us:
We see God,
here by our side,
walking our way.
