Show Me the Suffering of the Most Miserable

SHOW ME THE SUFFERING OF THE MOST MISERABLE

Show me the suffering of the most miserable; So I will know my people’s plight.
Free me to pray for others;
For you are present in every person.

Help me to take responsibility for my own life; So that I can be free at last.
Give me honesty and patience;
So that I can work with other workers.

Bring forth song and celebration;
So that the Spirit will be alive among us.
Let the Spirit flourish and grow;
So that we will never tire of the struggle.
Let us remember those who have died for justice; For they have given us life.
Help us love even those who hate us;
So we can change the world.
Amen.

~César Chávez
