Derek Webb: “This Too Shall Be Made Right” (2007)

The most instrumentally spartan cut on Derek Webb’s Ringing Bell album is also its most searingly direct. The song is an indictment of many, including the singer himself, but it’s also a restating of Christ’s words about His father’s kingdom, and the divine justice that will set all things right. Thought-provoking. Chilling, even.

I don’t know the suffering of people outside my front door/I join the oppressors of those I choose to ignore

I’m trading comfort for human life/And that’s not just murder it’s suicide/And this too shall be made right
