I'm a Cursillista, too, and I never heard the Christian verses during my Cursillo back in the 70s. My guess is they were added later. Even though I agree with the sentiments expressed in those verses, I think the song is better without them. It's essentially a celebration of life, with chickens and roosters and rainbows and all those wonderful, commonplace things that fill our hearts with joy.
