i Lord,our Lord, Thy glorious Name All Thy wondrous works proclaim; In the heavens with
ra-diant signs Ev-er-more Thy glo-ry shines. In-fant lips Thou dost or-dain Wrath and vengeance
The Lord the Righteous Judge
2 My enemies turn and are scattered in fear,
They stumble and perish because Thou art near;
Thou sittest in judgment, upholding Thy laws.
Their memory perished, their dwelling-place void;
The peoples to judge and the right to maintain.
All trust Thee who know Thee, and trusting are blest;
The soul that has sought of Thy grace to partake.
Of Him Who has chosen in Zion to dwell,
Who visits the lowly and overthrows wrong.
And back from death's portals restore me, O Lord,
Their own evildoing destruction has brought;
That sinners are snared in the work of their hands.
Forgetting their God, Who is God over all;
No longer let sinners prevail in Thy sight;
2 The Lord, the everlasting King, 4 All they, Lord, that know Thy Name
Is seated on His judgment-throne; Their confidence in Thee will place, The righteous judge of all the world For Thou hast ne'er forsaken them
Will make His perfect justice known. Who earnestly have sought Thy face.
3 Jehovah will a refuge prove,
5 Sing praises to the Lord Most High, A refuge strong for all oppressed, To Him Who doth in Zion dwell; A safe retreat, where weary souls Declare His mighty deeds abroad,
In troublous times may surely rest. His deeds among the nations tell.
1 O Lord Most High, with all my heart Thy wondrous works I will pro - claim;
will be glad and give Thee thanks And sing the prais - es of Thy Name.
2 Let their devices work their fall, 6 Arise, O Lord, lift up Thy hand,
For in their shame is all their pride; O God, protect the poor and meek; And while they seek unrighteous gain Why should the proud Thy justice The Lord of justice is defied.
And words of bold defiance speak? 3 The wicked thinks, in foolish pride,
There is no God Who will repay: 7 O Lord, Thou wilt indeed requite, He has no fear of God or man
The sin and sorrow Thou dost see; Because God's judgments long delay.
Commit themselves, O Lord, to Thee. 4 Unmoved by fear of coming doom, 8 Break Thou the power of wicked men On fraud and wickedness intent,
And let their works no longer stand; With craft he lurks and waits to catch The Lord is King for evermore The helpless and the innocent.
Who drove the nations from His land.
5 A lion crouching for his prey, 9 Lord, Thou hast heard the lowly prayer,
He waits the poor to overthrow; The fainting heart Thou wilt restore, He thinks that God remembers not, The helpless cause Thou wilt maintain,
Or hides His face and will not know. That mortal man may boast no more.
Prayer for the Oppressed
PSALM 10 S. M.
C. Warwick Jordan
[Selected Stanzas ] 2 Do Thou, O Lord, arise;
4 Thou, Lord, hast heard their prayer O God, lift up Thy hand;
When humble hearts drew nigh; Forget Thou not the suffering poor, Thou also wilt revive their strength The humble in the land.
And ever hear their cry. 3 Their foes Thou dost behold,
5 Defend the fatherless Their wrongs Thou wilt repay;
And all who are oppressed, The poor commit themselves to Thee, That they by human pride and power Thou art the orphans' stay.
May be no more distressed. 20 Unshaken Faith Amid Danger PSALM 11 us
