We gods by Raymond A. Foss

Crying out, in our depths
about injustice, pain
the evil stalking the earth,
the scales unbalanced
unable to change

False measures
unfair to the people
the weak oppressed
crying out to God

But the song deeper
the words they sang
the congregation in the temple
the chosen people of God

God calling to us
to you and to me
“we gods” he created
given dominion over the earth

A lament ringing
a call to action it should be
to change the whole world
resetting the balances
that we would be conformed to thee
