song 19: here am I

Noah wrote this week's song, based on Isaiah 58, on Martin Luther King Jr. Day back in 2009...

is this not the kind of fasting I have chosen
to loose the chains of injustice
to untie and break every yoke
to set the oppressed free

is it not to share your food with the hungry
to give the wanderer shelter
when you see the naked to clothe him
not to turn away from your own flesh and blood

then you will call and the Lord will answer
you will cry for help and He will say
here am I...

then your light will break forth like the dawn
your healing will quickly appear
your righteousness will go before you
and the glory of the Lord will guard the rear

then you will call...

then He will call and you will answer
He will call your name and you will say
here am i...
