Enviado soy de Dios,
mi mano lista está
para construir con El
un mundo fraternal.
Los ángeles no son
enviados a cambiar
im mundo de dolor
por un mundo de paz.
Me ha tocao a mí
hacerlo realidad;
a yúdame, Señor,
a hacer tu voluntad.

Sent out in Jesus' name,
our hands are ready now
to make the earth the place
in which the kingdom comes.
The angels cannot change
a world of hurt and pain
into a world of love,
of justice and of peace.
The task is our to do,
to set it really free.
O help us to obey,
and carry out your will.
