O Defender of the Poor, Come~
Create in us generous hearts.
Open our eyes to see your presence,
in those who experience
hunger and thirst,
in those who are naked and lonely,
in those who are imprisoned or homeless.
Remind us that the way we treat
those in need, the least of these,
is the way we treat your son, Jesus.
What we do for our brothers and sisters,
we do for him.
Stretch our hearts to be open and responsive
to the pleas of those who are poor.
