Reasons to Applaud

People often quantify their goodness
By what they have not done
"Well, I have not robbed
Or murdered anyone."
But on Judgement Day
God will ask, "What have you done?"
How did you treat the poor,
Did you believe in Christ, My Son
Who said: the 'least of these'
Deserve the very best

Here is where your faith 
Meets a practical test -
Are the orphans and the widows,
And those who are imprisoned
People that you serve;
Is freeing the oppressed, 
Part of your life-long mission,
Seeking justice, loving mercy
Walking humbly with your God;
Will the things you do today
Give angels reasons to applaud?
