381. Arise, O Lord Our God, Arise (Psalm 132)

1 Arise, O Lord our God, arise
and enter now into your rest;
O let this house be your abode,
forever with your presence blest.

2 Your gracious covenant, Lord, fulfill;
turn not away from us your face;
establish here Messiah’s throne
and let him reign within this place.

3 Your Zion you have chosen, Lord,
and you have said, “I love her well,
this is my constant resting place,
and here will I delight to dwell.”

This paraphrase uses selected verses from Psalm 132, beginning with a petition for God’s presence in the Temple, which in turn becomes the throne of the promised Messiah. The third stanza balances the first with the divine assurance that Jerusalem is the place where God dwells.
