At the Fiesta del Maíz in Morazán last Saturday, groups from all of the communities in Cacaopera brought corn for lunch and a song or a skit to share. The scholarship students of La Hacienda shared a song of thanksgiving!

Lyrics:

Hoy, Señor, te damos gracias
Today, Lord, we give you thanks
por la vida, la tierra y el Sol;
for life, the earth, and the sun;
hoy, Señor, queremos cantar
today, Lord, we want to sing
las grandezas de tu amor.
of the greatness of your love.

Gracias, Padre, mi vida es tu vida,
Thank you, Lord, my life is your life,
tus manos amasan mi barro,
your hands knead my clay,
mi alma es tu aliento divino,
my soul is your divine breath,
tu sonrisa en mis ojos está.

Hoy, Señor, te damos gracias
Today, Lord, we give you thanks
por la vida, la tierra y el Sol;

Gracias, Padre, Tú guías mis pasos,
Thank you, Father, you guide my steps,
Tú eres la luz y el camino,
You are the light and the path,
conduces a Ti mi destino,

como llevas los ríos al mar.
just like you carry the rivers to the sea.

Hoy, Señor, te damos gracias

Gracias, Padre, me hiciste a tu imagen,

brindando mi amor al hermano,
offering love to my brothers and sisters,
construyendo un mundo de paz.
