All I ask of God
 
All I ask of God
 
That pain does not leave me indifferent,
And that parched death will not find me
Alone and empty not having done sufficient.
 
All I ask of God
That I not be indifferent to injustice
That they won’t slap my other cheek,
After their talon has scraped away my luck.
 
All I ask of God
That I not be indifferent to war,
It’s a big monster which crushes
All the poor innocence of the people.
 
All I ask of God
That I am be indifferent to deceit,
If a traitor can do more than the masses,
Then let not the masses forget him easily.
 
All I ask of God
That i am not indifferent to the future,
Hopeless is he who has to go away
To live a different culture.
 
All I ask of God
That i am not indifferent to war,
It’s a big monster that crushes
All the poor innocence of people.
 
Thanks!
