Lyrics:
1.  When we are living, it is in Christ Jesus,
    And when we're dying, it is in the Lord.
    Both in our living and in our dying,
    We belong to God, we belong to God.

2.  Through all our living, we our fruits must give.
    Good works of service are for offering.
    When we are giving, or when receiving,
    We belong to God, we belong to God.

3.  Mid times of sorrow and in times of pain,
    When sensing beauty or in love's embrace,
    Whether we suffer, or sing rejoicing,
    We belong to God, we belong to God.

4.  Across this wide world, we shall always find
    Those who are crying with no peace of mind,
    But when we help them, or when we feed them,
    We belong to God, we belong to God.


1.  Pues si vivimos para Él vivimos
    Y si morimos para Él morimos.
    Sea que vivamos o que muramos,
    Somos del Señor, somos del Señor.

2.  En esta vida, frutos hemos de dar
    Las obras buenas son para ofrendar.
    Ya sea que demos o que recibamos
    Somos del Señor, somos del Señor.

3.  En la tristeza y en el dolor,
    En la belleza y en el amor,
    Sea que suframos o que gocemos
    Somos del Señor, somos del Señor.

4.  En este mundo, hemos de encontrar
    Gente que llora y sin consolar.
    Sea que ayudemos o que alimentemos
    Somos del Señor, somos del Señor.
