When I was hungry, you gave me to eat;
When I was thirsty you gave to drink.
Whatsoever you do to the least of my brethren, You do it to Me.
Come and enter the house of My Father.
When I was a stranger, you opened your doors;
When I was naked, you gave me clothes. When I was tired, you gave me peace;
When I was frightened, you calmed me down.
When I was small, you though me to read; When I was lonely,
you gave me your love.
I was in prison, you visited me; I was sick and you took care of me.
In a strange country, you gave me a home;
When I had no job, you found me one.
When I was wounded, you took care of it; Looking for friendship,
you gave your hand.
Whether I was black, or white or yellow;
Mocked at or insulted, you carried my cross.
When I was old, you smiled at me; When I couldn’t find peace,
you brought it to me.
You saw me: full of spit and blood; Dirty with sweat,
still you said you knew me.
You were on my side in times of despise;
In the hour of joy, we were together.
