We must go
Live to feed the hungry
Stand beside the broken
We must go
Stepping forward
Keep us just from singing
Move us into action
We must go
— God of Justice,Tim Hughes

It was such a privilege to be a part of the Micah Challenge Australia "Voices for Justice" conference to do just that -  remember and reflect on God’s heart and passion to alleviate suffering, and then, in His name and strength, step into the political system and speak up for those who are impacted by injustice.

But its pretty clear God wants us to keep singing about this as well - so many of the Psalms appeal to God’s justice, righteousness and compassion.

He remains faithful forever, executing justice for the exploited and giving food to the hungry.
The Lord frees prisoners.
The Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
The Lord raises up those who are oppressed.
The Lord loves the righteous.
The Lord protects foreigners and helps the fatherless and the widow,
but He frustrates the ways of the wicked
— Psalm 146:6-9

Here’s some of the songs we learned over the weekend (plus a few more) that you might want to introduce in your church.  I pray they might help align your hearts with God’s and encourage you as you move into action!
