The Legacy of Injustice 

Injustice is all around us,
you see it everywhere,
but if we’re not real careful
we’ll find we just don’t care.

From a senseless drive-by shooting
to defacing redwood trees,
prevaricating by the fake news,
a family torn apart by adultery.

A child bullied on the playground,
cyberspace’s not safe at all,
sexual predators stalk our children,
evil’s pervasive since the fall.

Jesus, the Quintessential Savior,
fully God, completely man;
the universes consummate fixer upper
the One and Only Great I Am.

We’re a nation high on independence
though a civil war broke us apart;
our founding fathers fought for freedom
while enslaving millions, crushing hearts.

We’re all capable of evil,
born with the wicked gene,
until our nature gets inverted
fake-king evil rules supreme.

Our cold stony hearts need replacing
but that’s not something we can do,
our creator must replace ’em
with pliable hearts that He can use.
Jehovah-shalom, the God of mercy, grace, Amen.

Jesus, the Quintessential Savior,
fully God, completely man;
the universes consummate fixer upper
the One and Only Great I Am.

So what are we waiting for,
a personal invite from the King?
But a blood-quilled invitation’s been promulgated,
and with it our sins to bring.

So for us to end injustice
we have to get down on our knees
and pray the Sovereign Ruler
would restore and set men free;

while we work for God’s great justice
to graciously roll down,
understanding we’re the problem,
that only God can turn around;

For Jesus, the Quintessential Savior,
fully God, completely man;
is the universes consummate fixer upper
the One and Only Great I CAN.

About menmourningmoments

I'm happily married, the Father of 2 sons and 2 daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Death is all around us but somehow we've managed to distance ourselves from it. Men, Mourning, Moments is about how the death of my son awakened me to life & the desire to seize every moment as though it were my last. It's about making sense of life in the good times and bad and allowing GOD to carry me and teach me through the hard times in life.
