1. How long must we cry out
till justice rolls down like a river? How long will this night last,
and when will we all be together?
Teach me to do what is right:
work in the darkness, trust in the light.
And may love be the path I walk upon.
2. How long will these bombs fall,
and bodies get twisted and broken?
How long will these voices
keep shouting loud insult and slogan?
3. How long? Will your creatures be trampled,
How long must we cry out
till justice rolls down like a river?
