Lyrics as Poetry

Through all the world, a hungry Christ
must scavenge for his daily bread,
must beg the rich for crumb and crust —
we are the rich, the daily fed.Beyond the Church, a leper Christ
takes the untouchable by hand,
gives hope to those who have no trust,
whose stigma is our social brand.In torture cell, a prisoner Christ
for justice and for truth must cry
to free the innocent oppressed
while we at liberty pass by.We do not know you, beggar Christ,
we do not recognize your sores,
we do not see, for we are blind:
forgive us, touch us, make us yours.
