From the recording Crying for Freedom

“Whatever you do to the least of my brothers and sisters, the poor and powerless, you do to me.” These words are strikingly clear and unmistakable. Jesus identifies himself with the poor. The thirst in the throat of Jesus is a real thirst that cries to heaven as it did then on Calvary. And that cry of Jesus at the point of dying is repeated in thousands of throats that today are clamoring for justice and fair play, when they beg for bread, for respect for the color of their skin, for a minimal medical assistance, for shelter, for education, for freedom.

Lyrics

You ever walk in their shoes
You ever wake up with the feeling you might die
Then they make their way to the serving line for the children to get their pill

You can see in their eyes
There is a hunger for the good things they can see
But we put them down and we walk around with the words we don’t want to speak

Cryin for freedom
Flyin to freedom
Don’t you turn your back
They wanna be like that with some freedom
Prayin for freedom
Cravin the freedom
Don’t you turn your back
They wanna be like that with some freedom
We don’t ever look back
When they can be like that with some freedom

It’s not something we own
Why would we keep it from the ones who need a home
The special gift to pass around to the people who will never quit

Cryin for freedom…

Every single day we feel it
Think of all the ways we see it
Who is giving who is taking
Freedom

Cryin for freedom…
