C$" %)& +#ns(ired by love and an,er-
1. %nspired by lo&e and an"er,
disturbed by need and pain,
informed of -od)s own bias,
we ponder once a"ain:
23ow lon" must some folk suffer4
3ow lon" can few folk mind4
3ow lon" dare &ain self5interest
turn prayer and pity blind4)
#. /rom those for e&er &ictims
of heartless human "reed,
their cruel pli"ht composes
a litany of need:
2Where are the fruits of *ustice4
Where are the si"ns of peace4
When is the day when prisoners
and dreams find their release4)
'. /rom those for e&er shackled
to what their wealth can buy,
the fear of lost ad&anta"e
pro&okes a bitter cry,
26on)t 7uery our position0
6on)t criticise our wealth0
6on)t mention those e8ploited
by politics and stealth0)
,. !o -od, who throu"h the prophets
proclaimed a different a"e,
we offer earth)s indifference,
its a"ony and ra"e:
2When will the wron"s be ri"hted4
When will the kin"dom come4
When will the world be "enerous
to all instead of some4)
9.-od asks, 2Who will "o for me4
Who will e8tend my reach4
And who, when few will listen,
will prophesy and preach4
And who, when few bid welcome,
will offer all they know4
And who, when few dare follow,
will walk the road % show4)
:. Amused in someone)s kitchen,
asleep in someone)s boat,
attuned to what the ancients
e8posed, proclaimed, and wrote,
a sa&iour without safety,
a tradesman without tools,
has come to tip the balance
with fishermen and fools.
