Open our eyes, Lord, to the modern yoke;
the burden of our consumer culture,
the debt that holds people fast,
the myth of success which has us by the throat.
You offer the possibility of release;
unloosing the shackles of greed,
freeing us from the urge to acquire at any cost,
relieving us from the treadmill of busyness.
We are your new releases,
telling a story for this generation.
Feeding the hungry we whisper peace,
clothing the naked we murmur hope,
sheltering the homeless we declare your faithfulness.
