A Voice

A voice cries out in the wilderness

Make way for the Lord

Speak up for those without a voice

Defend the poor whose rights are violated

Their voice too often falling to the ground

The destitute stand helpless

Unless you take your stand on their behalf

Give voice to their cry

Give strength to their legs

Take them from where they can’t walk

To running their race

Every child created by God

Made in His image

Has a right to be safe

A right to be heard

A right to live

Wisdom cries out

Hear my voice

Speak to me

Know me

Treasure my instructions 

They are life to those that find them

The gems the poor need to hear

These pearls of wisdom

You must freely give

These words are the words 

You are to live by 

These words are the words

You are to speak
