Let Justice Roll Down Like a River

Let justice roll down like a river,
let justice flow  down to the sea;
let justice roll down like a river
let justice begin through me.

Justice for all who go hungry, 
crying to God to be fed,
left in a world of abundance 
to beg for a morsel of bread.


Justice for those who are homeless,
victims of war or of need,
trapped on the borders of nowhere,
lost in the canyons of greed.


Justice for all who are powerless, 
yearning for freedom in vain, 
plundered and robbed of their birth-right, 
silently bearing their pain.
