Heart stirred

My heart is stirred by a hunger for justice,

for peace to dance away war and end suffering.

My heart is stirred to see poverty gone,

for fairness of trade, slavery – no more!

Let justice triumph for those who need it;

let mercy begot for the grieved who seek it.

Let people break free from chains that hold them captive.

Let more people know hope, more freedom, release addicts!

Let those who are influencing help bring to fruition –

the best in each person, their potential, position!

Call out their identity, let them prosper and grow.

And the youth too! In them, we must sow!
