Translation of Spanish Text by Karen Gutierrez:
I am not moved to love you, my God,
because you have promised me heaven.
Neither is the fear of hell
my only cause for not offending you.
You move me, Lord.
I’m moved to see you
nailed on a cross and ridiculed.
It moves me to see your body so wounded,
I’m moved by your affronts and your death.
In the end, you move me. Your love, in every way,
That were there no heaven, I would love you still.
