Give voice to the prophets who speak the hard word;
Who have waited and listened for what must be heard.
Their lives they may forfeit, their loves they might lose,
But they speak as they find and they call us to choose.

Give voice to the voiceless who suffer alone,
Who have waited in silence, their suffering unknown;
Though horrors surround them, though no one comes near;
They speak in their silence and Christ bids us hear

Give voice to the questions that won’t go away;
We have all found it hard to believe what we say.
Christ’s spirit still breathes through our darkness and doubt
And we hope in a Kingdom whose truth shall win out

Verses 4-5 follow

Tune: 11 11 11 11 Anapaestic
