He was lost in the wilderness,
finding no way to a place he could stay
He was hungry and thirsty and his soul failed him
He sat in darkness and in the deepest gloom

Living in agony and depression
Through his tears he cried out
I prefer strangling and death
rather than this body of mine
It's not enough to be just
I deserve to die for the sin in my life

Porque no hay lugar donde se escondan
los que hacen maldad
Por haberte desobedecido, mi Dios
Estoy perdido en éste mundo de pecado
He caído y me estoy muriendo
Perdóname, Señor
Ayúdame, porque yo solo no puedo
Quiero estar contigo otra vez
("Because there is no dark place,
no deep shadow where evildoers can hide
For having disobeyed you, oh my God,
now my inside is rotten
like the leper's skin is destroyed
I've been lost in this world of sin
I've fallen and I'm dying
Forgive me, oh Lord
Help me, because I can't do it alone
I want to be with you again.")

Have mercy on me, my Jesus
Look upon my affliction and suffering
You lift me up from the doors of death
I remember the good times we had together, Lord,
but now I am bound by ties of death
and torments of perversity

He was lost in the wilderness,
finding no way to a place he could stay
He was hungry and thirsty and his soul failed him
He sat in darkness and in the deepest gloom

Living in agony and depression
Through his tears he cried out
I prefer strangling and death
rather than this body of mine
I deserve to die for the sin in my life
