May you seek the justice of the Lord

May you seek the justice of the Lord
with passion and persistence
trusting his ability to render a fair verdict
in all things.

May you be a voice of change
crying in the desert
speaking for those who have no voice.

And though there are no grapes on the vines
and no cattle in the fields
may we be a people
who beat swords to plowshares
who rejoice in the Lord
who are joyful in the God of salvation.
