He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

Justice For All


Let justice roll on like a river rushing down from Heaven’s throne
Righteousness flow on, like a never-failing stream
Let’s make it right, let’s make it fair
Let’s let love balance out the scale
Let’s make it now our fervent prayer
Justice For All

For the child born feeling lonely ‘cause she’ll never know her daddy’s name
For the victim bruised and wounded from bearing someone else’s shame
For the country taken from its people
And those taken from their native land
For the weary body for the soul down trodden
For those far away or close at hand

Let justice roll on like a river rushing down from the Father’s throne
Righteousness flow on, like a never-failing stream
Let’s make it right, let’s make it fair
Let’s let love balance out the scale
Let’s make it now our fervent prayer
Justice For All

For the widowed for the orphaned, for the weak and for the poor
For the man who's lost his dignity for the family rent and torn
For the young in prison for the lost in sin
Maybe lighter maybe darker skin
For those unloved for those unworthy
For my enemies and for my friends

Let justice roll on like a river rushing down from the Father’s throne
Righteousness flow on, like a never-failing stream
Let’s make it right, let’s make it fair
Let’s let love balance out the scale
Let’s make it now our fervent prayer
Justice For All
