This Is What Yahweh Asks of You / Walk Humbly with Your God

This hymn about social justice themes is based on Micah 6:8. It was written by American Roman Catholic religious sisters and teachers, Mary McGann RSCJ and Margo Morris RSCJ.

The song is the title track of an LP recorded by an unnamed Michigan ensemble (ref), and  released under the Sound Patterns label in 1974 (ref).

It is similar to in content and style to the Australian-composed Micah's Theme (Hear then what Yahweh asks of you).

Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website.

The song starts with a three-line chorus, and this is repeated after each of the three verses. A rough outline is:
Chorus:
This is what Yahweh asks of you, only this:
That you act justly, that you love tenderly,
That you walk humbly with your God.

1 My children I am with you such a little while ...

2 Do not let your hearts be troubled ...

3 Peace is the gift I leave with you ...
