Raise One Voice: A Song for Justice

The Torah tells the story of how when we were slaves
God sent a prophet to face the Pharaoh, our ancestors were saved
Why did God need Moses? Perhaps to show
That people have the power and we’re all part of the whole
Raise one voice, the truth that is your own
Raise one voice, you are not alone
For from the one comes many
And from the many – one
For justice to be done
Raise one voice
At times we’ve been the pharaoh
And other times enslaved
Now our task is to remember
That in God’s image we’re all made
So where we see oppression
To stand up and speak out
When power’s not merciful and just … just
Defending human dignity’s divine
We soar when we help every soul to shine
