Justice

Amos 1:1-2; 5:14-15; and 5:21-24

Listen, Israel! Listen, sons and daughters
Of Joseph: Justice is not a distant dream.

Let justice roll down the mountain like mighty waters.
Let righteousness be an ever-flowing stream.

Water cleanses the face of the evil and the good;
Let justice be like that for one and all.

Be fair to every soul; apply the law
Without regard for station great or small.

Let justice roll down the mountain like mighty waters.
Let righteousness be an ever-flowing stream.
