Imagine the News (Luke 6:17-49)

Imagine hearing the news
That said nothing about the banks,
The markets, the wars; imagine
The news that said you
Hungry now will be filled;

You weeping will laugh; blessed
Are you shunned and cast out;
Imagine the news that
Its woe for the rich,
For they have got theirs;

That it’s woe for the well-fed
Because hunger’s on its way;
Imagine the news that
The laughing ones will weep;

That’s the good news but
Imagine the news
That all you have to do

Is love your enemy;
That all you have to do
Is good to those who
Curse you, and pray

For those who curse you
And turn, and turn
The other cheek and give
And give to all who ask.

Imagine the news that
That is the way.
