We do not invoke God as defendants, but as parched lands.

  1. The original Spanish is:

    No invocamos a Dios como reos, sino como tierras sedientas.

  2. Cf. Ps. 63 (62); 1-2 (tr. The Jerusalem Bible):

    God, you are my God, I am seeking you,
    my soul is thirsting for you,
    my flesh is longing for you,
    a land parched, weary and waterless;
    I long to gaze on you in the Sanctuary,
    and to see your power and glory.
