Oh, child of the one true King,

What does your God desire?

What is it that He calls good?

How does He ask you to live?

Act justly. Love mercy. Walk humbly

With your God.

Act justly, child of the Lord.

Mishpâṭ: treat people equitably.

No favoritism, excusing the sins

Of those you like more, withholding

Grace on a whim or a grudge; live out

The justice of your Lord.

Love mercy, oh, beloved one.

Don’t just act with kindness and

Compassion, truly love them.

Delight to treat others with

The grace, the tenderness

You have received.

Walk humbly with your God.

You were never meant to walk

Alone with nose held high.

No. Hand-in-hand with your

Savior, heart-to-heart, humble,

Patient, kind.

This is the path of peace.

This is the way to joy.

Your God desires this

Because this leads to fullness,

Flourishing, fulfillment, and all

God has for you.

“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8).
