Veo violencia en la ciudad, violencia y discordia.

Veo violencia en la ciudad.

¡Señor, ten piedad!

I see unrest in the city streets; / discord and suff’ring flourish. Violence and fear strike a constant beat. / Have mercy, O Lord! 

1.Escucha, Oh Dios, mi oración;

Oye la voz de mi ruego.

Mira atento nuestra opresión,

ven y rescata a tu pueblo.

By Carlos Colon
