God of the just heart
In the challenging words of the Sermon on the Mount
‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for justice
They shall be satisfied’
You remind us that satisfaction does not lie
Where we might expect it
In the security of wealth and privilege
But in the joy of doing what is right
And in working to assert the value and dignity of other people
Because this is the calling of your community
This builds relationships and just societies
This brings deep satisfaction
As all are made welcome.
So keep us hungering and thirsting
For the values that make us all whole
And then we know the healing fountains will start.
Holy Dreams to Feed the Soul
Garth Hewitt writes redemption songs
and then sings them without fear.
His voice comes through clearly,
challenging us by his witness to act for justice. His is a brave voice,
needed more than ever in a fearful world, and in a sometimes timid church.
Please God, it will help us
sing redemption songs of our own.
