From the album Lights Along the Way

In cart Not available Out of stock

As a child I remember learning about the Biblical practice of Jubilee but being bewildered that we had to wait every 50th year for slaves to be freed, debts to be forgiven, and mercy to be bestowed. My adult self has learned that if we want such a Jubilee, we must ask ourselves: “What am I going to do to make it so?”

Lyrics

I want to live the jubilee
What am I going to do to make it so?
I want to live with justice overflowing
What am I going to do to make it so?
Each of us has heard the call, each of us more gifts to share
I want to live the jubilee
What am I going to do to make it so?

I want to live the good news
What am I going to do to make it so?
I want to live with mercy everywhere
What am I going to do to make it so?
Each of us has heard the call, each of us more gifts to share
I want to live the good news
What am I going to do to make it so?

Sisters, brothers, you are needed
Sisters, brothers, heed the call
To bring shalom, to be shalom, to live shalom right now

I want to be where all are welcome
What am I going to do to make it so?
I want to live with grace abundant
What am I going to do to make it so?
Each of us has heard the call, each of us more gifts to share
I want to be where all are welcome
What am I going to do to make it so?

Some day children will all be loved
Some day hunger will be no more
Some day we’ll all live in peace
Let’s make that day come soon, let’s make that day come now

I want to live the jubilee
What am I going to do to make it so?
I want to live with justice overflowing
What am I going to do to make it so?
Sisters, brothers, you are needed
Sisters, brothers, heed the call
Let’s bring shalom, let’s be shalom, let’s live shalom right now

I want to live the good news
What am I going to do to make it so?
I want to live with mercy everywhere
What am I going to do to make it so?

Each of us has heard the call, each of us more gifts to share
I want to live the jubilee
What am I going to do to make it so?
Make it so
Make it so
