Based on two passages of scripture: Micah 6 (What does the Lord require?) and Matthew 12 (The Beatitudes). It is a song about the invitation to live simply and fully. The Beatitudes are often used as the Gospel on Saint’s Days — including All Saints — so they offer different models of how we ought to live.

To act with justice,
to love with tenderness
and to walk humbly with your God.

This is a revised version of the song which was written in 2008. Originally the verses, from the Beatitudes, were a direct quotation from scripture and sung to a chant. That version is still included in the music but alternative more lyrical verses are now also included.

What does the Lord require?
