Arise, Eternal, O My God
Words: portions of Psalm 10

1. The wicked in their pride pursue and make the poor their prey; Let them be taken in the snare which they for others lay. The wicked, thru his pride of face, on God will never call; And in the counsels of his heart the Lord is not at all. 2. Within his heart he thus hath said, I never moved shall be; and no adversity at all shall ever come to me. With cursing, fraud, and foul deceit, His mouth is always filled; While vanity and mischief lie beneath his tongue concealed. 3. Arise, Eternal, O my God, lift up Thy hand on high; Put not the poor and humble ones out of Thy memory. O judge the fatherless and those beneath oppression sore; That man, who is but sprung of earth, may them oppress no more.
