Black lives matter.
Black lives matter,
so precious to our God and to us all.
Let us end the slaughter
of our sons and daughters.
As Christians, seeking justice is our call.
Young lives matter.
Young lives matter
too much to waste their lives inside a jail.
Let us change our systems.
Let us open prisons.
The stakes are high; God, guide us lest we fail.
Our lives matter.
Our lives matter
for we can take some part in ending strife.
Standing ground and sharing
with a holy daring,
we pledge ourselves to serve the cause of life.
All lives matter.
All lives matter,
regardless what we've done or who we are.
Are God's people willing
to help stop the killing?
God, guide us; be our compass and our star.
