BARKA-RIVER BOAT
[Original written in Polish by - Fr. Jan Pach ]


River Boat

Once the Lord stood on the shore,
searching for people ready to follow Him,
to catch hearts with God's words of truth.

O Lord, it was You who looked at me,
Your lips today pronounced my name.
My boat I will leave on the shore,
together with You, today I will begin a new catch.

Barka

Pan kiedyś stanął nad brzegiem,
szukał ludzi gotowych pójść za Nim,
by łowić serca słów Bożych prawdą.

O Panie, to Ty na mnie spojrzałeś,
Twoj usta dziś wyrzekły me imię.
Swoją barkę pozostawaiam na brzegu,
razem z Tobą nowy zacznę dziś łów.
