Go Down Moses 2019

Go down Moses 
way down in borderland
Tell old Trump he
Better better let my children go

When these children came to this free
Let my children go
He tore them from their mother's handa
Let my children go

He put those babies in a cage
Let my children go
Set fire to my holy rage
Let my children go

And those who watch while he does this
Let my children go
Are just as guilty as he is
Let my children go

If he won't hear what you say
Let my children go
No tweet can tell the price you'll pay
Let my children go

Go down Moses
Way down in borderlands
Tell old Trump he
Better let my children go


I believe that
Jesus came
To proclaim

for the captive and the oppressed;
opening prison doors
and ending exploitation
of the vulnerable and the weak.

for the sins that wound
the brothers and sisters
God has given me.

for the deep wounds
of my life and theirs,
that shame and paralyze and isolate

in new beginnings
where second chances come true;
and economic Justice is reality.

No wonder they had to kill Him.

But Jesus conquered Death,
was resurrected, lives again
and promised that I shall share
that victory with Him.

This is the Kingdom
that He invites me, and everyone, to live in.
To work for now
and live in forever.

Even when I am most afraid
of what the world can do to me
I cling to this truth:
The battle is already won
The final word is His
That Word will be Love
and we will live in that love forever.
