O Lover of Justice, Come
Isaiah 61:8 For I the Sovereign love justice, I hate robbery and wrong; I will faithfully give them their recompense, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.
O Lover of Justice, Come~
You promise that the wrong shall fail,
the right prevail,
with peace on earth and good will toward all.
Make us lovers of your good will and justice.
Move the intentions of our hearts
from revenge to rehabilitation,
from punishment to understanding,
from laws of retribution to your law of love.
Open us to your vision of justice
for a world where all are welcome,
all are treated with respect and love,
all have chances to create meaningful lives.
Compel us to work joyfully
for your peace and justice in this world.
