All lyrics contained in this song are the transcribed prayers of Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero (1917-1980). Romero was murdered in 1980 while celebrating mass in a small hospital chapel in San Salvador. He was a vigorous defender of the powerless and the poor and a critic of unjust military and government actions during a time of civil unrest in his country.
