You came to set men free Lord
Yet men are still bound by oppression
To proclaim your justice Lord
But still injustice is rife in your world.
You came in love but men preferred hatred
You came in peace but men preferred war
How shall we show the world your care Lord?
The Lord says:
Where man is oppressed - proclaim my freedom.
Where injustice rules - let my justice be known.
Where there is violence - I give you my peace
Where there is hatred - I give you my love.
Lord show that you care through us your people that we might be:
For freedom and against oppression
For justice and against injustice
For love and against hatred
For love and against violence
That we may follow the example of Jesus our Master. Amen
