When Jesus Came to Jordan

O God, Your Justice Towers


O God, your justice towers above our human plane,
while nation vies with nation in restless search of
gain.
Where lust for wealth corrupts us, God, turn our
hearts again.
Let justice roll like waters, a mighty, cleansing
stream!

O God, your eye, unsleeping, beholds inequity,
while we, replete with riches, grow blind to poverty.
Correct our darkened vision until the truth we see.
Let justice roll like waters, a mighty, cleansing
stream.

O God, your heart is breaking where wretched
millions lie,
where people wander homeless and famished
children die.
Renew in us compassion and teach our hearts to
cry:
Let justice roll like waters, a mighty, cleansing
stream!

Where evil still is coursing, a foul, defiling stream,
fulfill among earth’s people your prophets ancient
dream!
God, stir us with your passion; this wayward world
redeem,
till justice rolls like waters, a mighty cleansing
stream!
