If you translated by Ann Wood

IF YOU GAVE TO THE HUNGRY EVEN
A LITTLE BREAD FROM YOUR BREAD,
IF YOU GAVE EVEN A WANDERER
SPARK OF FIRE FROM YOUR FIRE,
IF YOU GAVE TO YOUR MILE
FROM MY HEART,
IF YOU GAVE TO FOREIGNERS
LIFE OF YOURSELF,
IF YOU GAVE, IF YOU GAVE,
IF YOU GAVE FROM YOURSELF,
YOU DIDN'T LIVE, YOU DIDN'T LIVE
IN VAIN.
NO ONE CAN TAKE YOU AWAY
LOVE, LOVE OF PEOPLE.
NO ONE CAN TAKE IT FROM YOU
LOVE, LOVE FOR PEOPLE.
AND NO ONE AND NOTHING WILL TAKE YOU AWAY
FAITH IN THEM, FAITH IN THEM, FAITH IN THEM.
YOU ARE SOMETIMES SOMETIMES, TRUE,
BUT YOU ALWAYS COME, YOU COME TO US.
IF YOU TOOK FROM THE GLORY OF
SOMEONE ELSE EVEN A PARTICLE,
IF YOU HEARD FROM THE GOOSE AND ME
YOU REPEAT EVEN ONE SECOND,
IF YOU ARE AN ENEMY OF THE BAD, BUT YOU LISTEN TO HIM
EVEN A SINGLE WAY,
IF YOU EAT YOUR FRIEND'S BITE
AND YOU FORGET IT,
DID IT SHOULD, DID IT HAVE TO,
DID IT NEED AT ALL,
DID IT NEED AT ALL,
TO BE BORN.
NO ONE CAN TAKE YOU AWAY
LOVE, LOVE OF PEOPLE.
NO ONE CAN TAKE IT FROM YOU
LOVE, LOVE FOR PEOPLE.
AND NO ONE AND NOTHING WILL TAKE YOU AWAY
FAITH IN THEM, FAITH IN THEM, FAITH IN THEM.
YOU ARE SOMETIMES SOMETIMES, TRUE,
BUT YOU ALWAYS COME, YOU COME TO US.
