 The kind of fast You've chosen, Lord    It must reach out
Bm         Fm               G
 To broken lives and to the poor         So change me, Lord

 Without compassion in my life           And holiness 

       Fm             G                      Fm                     G

I know You are the orphan's hope        I know You are the widow's song 
       Fm             G                     Fm                     G
You're Father were no father lives      And to the lonely You're a friend
