For Love

For love of your justice, O God,
keep your promise
to comfort the mourning
and relieve the oppressed.

For love of your dream, O God,
keep your promise
to fill our tongues with joy
and bring peace among the nations.

For love of your light, O God,
keep your promise
to speak hope to the lost
and gladness to the fainthearted.

For love of your testimony, O God,
keep your promise
to reprieve the poor and empty the rich,
to lift up the overlooked and devastate the powerful.

For love of your anointing, O God,
keep your promise
to send us out with good news
and embolden us to live free of fear.
