God of Justice

Lately, I have shared kind of a passion for Social Justice. Here is a song by Tim Huges. I was convicted about many things when I first heard this song. I want to encourage you (and myself) to go out to the world and show love to the lost like this. Take a homeless guy out for coffee, donate some old clothes or serve at a soup kitchen.

God of Justice, Saviour to all
Came to rescue the weak and the poor
Chose to serve and not be served

Jesus, You have called us
Freely we've received
Now freely we will give

We must go live to feed the hungry
Stand beside the broken
We must go
Stepping forward keep us from just singing
Move us into action
We must go

To act justly everyday
Loving mercy in everyway
Walking humbly before You God

You have shown us, what You require
Freely we've received
Now freely we will give


Fill us up and send us out
Fill us up and send us out
Fill us up and send us out Lord

Take Everything

Another melody
Another empty song
I tell myself that
I have praised you
And try and make believe
This is all you want
But once again
I know I’ve missed it
Praising you is not just the songs I sing
Jesus here I am
Take everything


Take the pain inside
Take the brokenness
Don’t stop til there’s nothing left
My arrogance
My pride
The loss of innocence
Jesus, take everything


There’s nothing left I need
That’s when I feel alive
Holy Spirit fall
Fresh upon me
You can have it all
