Let Justice Roll Lyrics

Forgive us Lord for passing by
When children cry for bread
Forbid it, Lord, the justice lie
In tatters, cold and dead
Outside these walls run desperate streets
Where greed is law and life is cheap
We bar the doors
Refuse to see
Or hear the words You said

Let justice roll like a river
Like a river, let it roll
Let justice roll like a river
Like a river, let it roll

Convict us, Lord, we dance and laugh
Ignoring those who weep
Correct us, Lord, our golden calf
Has lulled our hearts to sleep
The gap between the rich and poor
Grows ever wider, shore to shore
There's racial hate, religious war
Wolves among the sheep

Let justice roll like a river
Like a river, let it roll
Let justice roll like a river
Like a river, let it roll
Let justice roll like a river
Like a river, let it roll
Let justice roll like a river
Like a river, let it roll

Indwell us, Lord, and purify
Our hands to work for you
Enlist us, Lord, to serve nearby
And cross the waters too
Your image bearers on the earth
Will never know how much they're worth
Unless we love and help them first
Show the way to you

Let justice roll like a river
Like a river, let it roll
Let justice roll like a river
Like a river, let it roll
Let justice roll like a river
Like a river, let it roll
Let justice roll like a river
Like a river, let it roll

Let it roll
Let it roll
Let it roll
Let it roll

Let justice roll like a river
Like a river, let it roll
Let justice roll like a river
Like a river, let it roll
Let justice roll like a river
Like a river, let it roll
Let justice roll like a river
Like a river, let it roll
