Amos I Hear Your Voice

Lord I've got an ego I want people to like me (Luke 6:26)
I love to sing the songs that make them laugh and feel good
But Lord I know you've called me
To stand up for the gospel
To preach the truth in love and carry my own cross (Mark 8:34-38)

Amos I hear your voice
Saying let justice roll, and righteousness flow
Amos I hear your voice
Saying my music is noise, unless I cry for justice

Right now there are people dying of starvation
And we all know there's food enough to feed this planet
Let's beat some swords to plowshares (Isaiah 2:1-4)
Or turn some tanks to tractors
I mean feed the people before we oil the war machine


Well there's more to being human than a big piece of the pie (Deut 8:3;Mk. 8:36; Mk.10:17-22; Lk.12:13-21)
And there's more to being Christian than a home up in the sky (Luke 17:21)
I want to live that prayer we pray every week in every church
Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, right here on earth (Mark 6:10)

Well it don't take calculators to know that something's wrong
When 6 percent of the world consume a third of its resources
And the scriptures say it clearly
God will judge the nations (Matthew 25:31-46)
And justice for the poor will be the plumb line (Is. 28:17; Amos 7:7-8)

(Double Chorus)
