Justice

You met a smooth talking stranger, had Cupid on his arm
His words went down like fine red wine
And he won you with his charms
You loved him and trusted him
Believed every word he said
But he lied and he deceived you
Now someone else is in your bed

He left you for another
He betrayed you with a kiss
But God says in the end
Just give me justice!

Last night I turned on my TV and a preacher said to me
He said, “Just send me a hundred dollar bill
God will bless you ten times you see!”
Some equate money with holiness
My friend that is a lie
One man claimed God held him ransom
If he didn’t get enough he’d die

But my life does not consist of
All the things which I possess
Do you hear God’s call to faithfulness?
And not to success? Give me justice!

Look through your stained glass window
Sitting right outside your church
There’s a poor man living on the corner
Not a penny in his purse
His clothes are torn and tattered
Got no shoes upon his feet
Have you shared with him your bread and wine?
Or left him on the street

To care for the widow and orphan
Pure religion is this
When you’ve done it to the least of them
There is justice!
