From Songs from the Batahola Cultural Center in Nicaragua, quoted in Walter Wink, The Human Being (Minneapolis, Fortress Press, 2002), p. 273.

You are the God of the poor,
the human and simple God,
the God who sweats in the street,
the God with the weather-beaten face.
That’s why I can talk to you
the way I talk to my people,
Because you are God the worker
and Christ is a worker, too.
