To the crucified Christ by Gustavo Becquer (1876)

It does not move me, my God, for to love you
The sky that you have promised me,
nor it moves me the Hell so greatly feared
Not to offend you
you move me, Lord; it moves me to see you
Nailed in a cross naked;
It moves me to see your wounded body;
offends me the insults to you and your death.
Moves me, finally your love, and in such a way,
That if there were no sky, I would still love you.
And if there were no Hell, I would still fear you.
You do not have to give me so that I will want you;
then what I hope I did not wait for it.
I would love you the same as I always have.
