Lord You Hear The Cry

Lord You Hear The Cry

1. Lord, you hear the cry
of the widow weeping;
Lord, you hear the cry
of the child ill-treated;
Lord, you hear the cry
of the depressed one sinking;
Lord, have mercy on us,
Lord have mercy on us.

2. Lord, you hear the sound
of the proud ones laughing;
Lord, you hear the sound
of the childless hoping;
Lord, you hear the sound
of those in debt and struggling;
Lord, have mercy on us,
Lord have mercy on us.

Chorus
Break the heavens, Lord,
you said the poor are not forgotten.
Let your justice roar
in mighty waves across the earth.
Come and whisper peace,
O God of generous compassion.
Lord, have mercy on us,
Lord, have mercy on us.

3. Lord, you hear the sound
of the addict craving;
Lord, you hear the sound
of the greed of nations;
Lord, you hear the sound
of the martyrs praying;
Lord, have mercy on us,
Lord, have mercy on us.

Chorus

4. Lord, we hear the sound
of your kingdom coming;
Resurrection Day
for creation groaning.
Mercy I receive,
pouring out in loving;
Lord, have mercy on us
Lord, have mercy on us.
