Original text and translations
1. Jesus watched us from a mountain,
moving toward him up a slope,
bringing basic human hunger --
a community of hope.
2. We are climbing with a purpose,
bearing poverty like a seed
to be scattered on the mountain --
a community of need.
3. Jesus gathered us in welcome,
sat us on the grassy earth,
paid attention to our longing --
a community of worth.
4. Then with gifts a child presented
Jesus saw that we were fed
and brimful of like compassion --
a community of bread.
