Doing Justice – v5

Our lives, not by our words, intentions
measured by our actions
how we lived our lives;
did we do justice in our time
were those hungry fed,
those thirsty given drink
whether we welcomed a stranger
and offered clothes to those in need

Our lives measured by our faith
not by our words, intentions
by our faith lived out in our lives
how we care for our neighbors
all our neighbors, wherever we may go
no one truly a stranger
all our brothers, our sisters
helping them, all those in need
