The Things The Lord Requires

"Things The Lord Requires"

Wake up in the morning
See what the anchorwoman's got to say
A coup d'etat down south somewhere
And bundle up it's cold outside today
And there's meltdowns and machine guns
Right in my living room
These satellites have shrunk the world
What am I supposed to do?

I'll try to be a doer of justice
I'll try to be a person who's kind
I'll try to be somebody whose humble
'Cause these are the things the Lord requires

I'm trying to change my coffee brand
Some companies exploit the third world poor
But I feel like I should laugh or cry
I've tried to change so many things before
But I gave up legalism
'Cause it only left me judged
I'll do the best that I can do
Though it never seems enough


Justice, kindness, humbleness
Let these be my desire
Justice, kindness, humbleness
Show that the Spirit's alive
