(Micah 6: 3, 6-8)
A modern musical setting of Micah 6: 3-8. The chorus is taught easily as it is written in a call and response form. The music evokes an ancient time (i.e. before we starting worrying about things like parallel fifths). This song has been updated with a new third verse which is presently included in the lyrics, lyrics and chords, lead sheet and accompaniment version.
" ...and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? " Micah 6: 8b

MICAH'S SONG (Seek Justice) based on Micah 6: 3, 6-8.
Words and music by David Kai. Tune: Popoff
Seek justice (seek justice),
Love kindness (love kindness),
Walk humbly with your God,
(walk humbly with your God).
In troubled times when God’s message must be heard,
Prophets like Micah proclaim the living word,
“How have I wronged you, my people,
You who I guard, who I save?”
“Will I be pleased with burnt offerings and oil,
fruits of your labours and harvests of your toil?
I seek no sacrifices,
Listen to what I require”
Now is the time when God’s message must be heard,
This is the day to embrace the living word,
Will we take heed, or ignore them,
Words ancient, needed today?
