May the God of hope go with us ev'ry day,
filling all our lives with love and joy and peace.
May the God of justice speed us on our way,
bringing light and hope to ev'ry land and race.

Praying, let us work for peace,
singing, share our joy with all.
Working for a world that's new,
faithful when we hear Christ's call.

¡Dios de la esperanza, danos gozo y paz!
Al mundo en crisis, habla tu verdad.
Dios de la justicia, mándanos tu luz,
Luz y esperanza en la oscuridad.

Cantemos de tu amor.
Luchemos por la paz,
Fieles a Ti, Señor.
