Catholic hymns

Are there any hymns particularly associated with Liberation Theology or the Catholic Worker movement? Basically, I'm looking for something that's the equivalent of "We Shall Overcome." The story itself is set in the near-future, but I'd like to err on the side of traditional rather than contemporary, if possible.

Google suggests that there may be a Catholic Worker song that goes, "Courage, Sister; Courage, Brother. You do not walk alone. We will walk with you, and sing your spirit home," but alas, does not provide any lyrics beyond that.

Bonus points for anything that references, however obliquely, themes having to do with prisoners or justice.

EDIT: Thanks so much, folks. You've given me a lot to work with.
