Cárcel de Temuco, September - December 1973

My experience during our captivity can be summed up in this personal observation. Protest songs were forbidden, so we had no other option than to sing religious songs. One religious song really struck a chord among my fellow prisoners, to such an extent that it took on the character of a true battle anthem. We sang it with such fervour that it became a genuine message of faith and hope for the much yearned-for freedom and justice.

I can trust the Lord
Who will guide me
I can trust the Lord
Who will not fail me.

If the sun were to dim
And cease to shine
I still would trust the Lord
Who will not let me down.

I can rest
I can rest
Knowing that Christ
Will give me his mansion.

If the sun were to dim
And cease to shine
I still would trust the Lord
Who will not let me down.
