More than Teach a Man to Fish

Teach a man to fish and he’ll have all the food he needs.

Then the rich built a fence around the lake.

And the factory poisoned the water with pollution.

And those in power said he couldn’t fish without a license.

God the system is rigged.

The poor keep getting poorer.

Social mobility is a myth.

What once was a living is now merely surviving.

Lord Jesus, hear our cries.

Spirit, speak through our voice for the silenced.

Spirit, vote through our vote for the disenfranchised.

Spirit, transform our hearts, minds, and souls.

Lord Jesus, hear our cries.

Move your Church to stand up to bullies.
