The Lord the Righteous Judge

2 My enemies turn and are scattered in fear,

They stumble and perish because Thou art near;
For Thou hast defended my right and my cause,

Thou sittest in judgment, upholding Thy laws.
3 Rebuked are the nations, the wicked destroyed,

Their memory perished, their dwelling-place void;
Enthroned and eternal, Jehovah shall reign,

The peoples to judge and the right to maintain.
4 Thou, Lord, art a refuge for all the oppressed;

All trust Thee who know Thee, and trusting are blest;
For never, O Lord, did Thy mercy forsake

The soul that has sought of Thy grace to partake.
5 Give praise to Jehovah, the mighty deeds tell

Of Him Who has chosen in Zion to dwell,
Of Him to Whom justice and vengeance belong,

Who visits the lowly and overthrows wrong.
6 Behold my affliction, Thy mercy accord,

And back from death's portals restore me, O Lord,
That I in the gates of Thy Zion may raise
My song of salvation and show forth Thy praise.
7 The sins of the nations their ruin have wrought,

Their own evildoing destruction has brought;
In this the Lord's justice eternally stands,

That sinners are snared in the work of their hands.
8 The wicked shall perish, the nations shall fall,

Forgetting their God, Who is God over all;
But God will remember the prayer of the weak,
Most surely fulfilling the hope of the meek.
9 Arise in Thy justice, O Lord, and Thy might,

No longer let sinners prevail in Thy sight;
Great Judge of the nations, in judgment appear
To humble the proud and to teach them Thy fear.

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.

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.

The helpless and the fatherless

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.

[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
