Hear the Cry of the Poor

I call you to justice.
Hear My cry.
Sacrifice your comfort.
Leave your wealth.

Strip the layers
that hide Me from you.
Give up the things
that hide Me from you.

Share Me with those
who know Me not.
Strip the mask
that hides your real self.

Expose yourself to pain.
See Me in sorrow.
Rejoice in the suffering.
Remember I died for you in pain.

Hear My voice.
Live in obedience.
Hear the cry of the poor.
Go be their hope.

Do you hear His voice?
