Perhaps inspired by an earlier rephrasing of Jesus. Or not:
The LORD is my standard, I shall not relent.
He makes me lie down outside court houses.
He leads me to trending hashtags.
He agitates my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness for humanity’s sake.
Because I live in systemic injustice, I will fear, for you may be with me;
but your rod and your staff, must punish oppressors.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
what’s up with that?
Surely righteous indignation shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I shall remain on social media forever.

This is terrific. I put it right up there with The Lenten Song.
Outstanding. It won’t calm my midnight fears like the classic version though.
Isn’t this from The Message?
chortles, not sure what you’re asking. I’m tempted to answer “all about mmmmmmmeeeeeeeEEEEE”
Hilarious! I can see it now: the Social Justice Study Bible, edited by D.G. Hart.
This is tremendous. Certainly Crossway or Lifeway or Someway or That or Thisway has got a six figure deal ready for your SJW Study Bible.
