Lyrics

Verse 1
Let the orphan glean the vineyard;
Let the widow reap the field;
Let the pauper pick the olives;
For the LORD has blessed the yield.
As the LORD has blessed the harvest,
And has heard the needy call,
Show compassion to your neighbor:
For the LORD is Lord of all.

Verse 2
Hear the weakest cry for justice
Whether man or maid or youth;
See the mighty without envy;
For the LORD has judged in truth.
As the LORD has judged all people,
And has heard the weary call,
Show compassion to your neighbor:
For the LORD is Lord of all.

Verse 3
Do not cause the blind to stumble;
Do not curse the deaf or weak;
Treat the stranger as a brother;
For the LORD has loved the meek.
As the LORD has loved the humble,
And has heard the helpless call,
Show compassion to your neighbor:
For the LORD is Lord of all.
