What does the Lord require of me?
How can I know His will for me?
What does He ask that I should see?
Lord, help me know your plan
First we must do the things that are just
So that others will know we are men of trust
For our principles we will not adjust
Just to win one more friend or two.
Then we show mercy to all we meet
For Jesus showed mercy to us in our need
We must pass on His mercy to all that we greet
To be what He wants us to be
And last but not least, the most difficult part
We must walk with a humble and lowly heart
Putting others before self in all regards
So His light will shine through me
These words are not new, but from ages past
The old prophet Amos did speak them first
And for these three things we all should thirst.
As this is the will of God for me.
I pray you will heed these words this day
Do justly, love mercy, walk humbly I pray
For these are the words that the prophet did say
Are requirements of our God.
