God resists a partial judgment,
spinning justice in the air,
mercy breathes in word and action
when the Spirit's breath is there.

Here the wicked face comeuppance,
here the weak are heard at last,
where each human word and action
counts for more than prayer or fast.

Verses 3-4 follow
Metre: 8 7 8 7 Trochaic
