799. L. M. Mrs. Chapman. For Faithfulness in the Cause of Human Freedom.
1 O God of freedom! hear us pray
For steadfast hearts to toil as one;
Till thy pure law hath boundless sway --
Thy will in heaven and earth be done.
2 A piercing voice of grief and wrong
Goes upward from the groaning earth;
Most true and holy Lord! how long? --
In majesty and might come forth.
3 Yet, Lord! remembering mercy too,
Behold th' oppressor in his sin;
Make all his actions just and true,
Renew his wayward heart within.
