When I was hungry, you gave me to eat;
when I was thirsty you gave me 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 taught me to read;
when I was lonely, you gave me your love.
I was in prison, you visited me;
WhenI 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 me 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.
