How long

Lord, how long must I stay in this desert
In this barren land
All around the people cheer and whoop
And hunt for treasure
Stepping over the poor and weak
Do they not see us?
Will you Oh Lord not vindicate your people?
Come and bring justice in this place
Your justice is right and true
Blessing all people near and far
Give us the daily bread we need
Give us the eyes to see this bread
And forgive us when we strive after delicacies
To salve the desires of our eyes
When our soul hungers for the bread of life
My soul longs for the bread
The bread that brings life
