cuando el pobre lyrics

verso: Cuando el pobre nada tiene y aun reparte, cuando el hombre pasa sed y agua nos da, cuando el débil a su hermano fortalece,

verse: When the poor ones who have nothing share with strangers, when the thirsty water give unto us all, when the crippled in their weakness strengthen others,

refrain: then we know that God still goes that road with us, then we know that God still goes that road with us.

estribillo: va Dios mismo en nuestro mismo caminar, va Dios mismo en nuestro mismo caminar.

2: When at last all those who suffer find their comfort, when they hope though even hope seems hopelessness, when we love though hate at times seems all around us,
2: Cuando sufre un hombre y logra su consuelo, cuando espera y no se cansa de esperar, cuando amamos, aunque el odio nos rodee,
3. Cuando crece la alegría y nos inunda, cuando dicen nuestros labios la verdad, cuando amamos el sentir de los sensillos,
3. When our joy fills up our cup to overflowing, when our lips can speak no words other than true, when we know that love for simple things is better,
4. Cuando abunda el bien y llena los hogares, cuando un hombre donde hay guerra pone paz, cuando "hermano" le llamamos al extraño,
4. When our homes are filled with goodness in abundance, when we learn how to make peace instead of war, when each stranger that we meet is called a neighbor,

let me know if you want the chords too. Actually, here:
Dm A7 Bb D7 Gm C7 F F E7 A7 Dm
Bb A7 Dm D7 Gm A7 Dm Gm Dm

By the way, this hymn sings the message that makes me want to be a Christian!!! Yay Unspeakable Mystery!

Good idea!


In other news, there seems to be a Johnny Cash retrospective on NPR right now. I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die.

Thanks for posting these lyrics Rachael! I have been looking for a source of the Spanish lyrics. These words make me want to stay a Christian ;-)

Googled for the lyrics of this song and this blog was one of the first things that came up! I don't know if you will ever see this, Rachael, but thanks. I enjoyed it back when you posted it and I still do. Absolutely beautiful song.
