Author: Christopher Idle Hymnal: Psalms for All Seasons #68C (2012) Meter: 10.10 First Line: Let God arise! His enemies be gone Lyrics: 1 (All) Let God arise! His enemies be gone
and melt like wax before the holy One.
2 (Women) Make known the Lord, and sound his name aloud
to praise the King who rides upon the cloud!
3 (Men) Father and judge, he gave the world his law
with freedom, love and justice for the poor.
4 (Women) God marched ahead, strong shepherd of his flock;
the heavens opened; earth in terror shook.
5 (Men) God spoke the word, and faithful was the band
of those who took the truth to every land,
6 (All) See God ascend, with captives as his prize,
and gifts for all who shall in him arise.
7 (Women) Bless day by day the living God who saves,
who raises up his people from their graves.
8 (Men) Draw near his throne: musicians lead our song!
All nations, tribes, and races join the throng.
9 (Women) All strength is his! The rebels reign no more;
he scatters all who take delight in war.
10 (Men) God rules on high, and mighty is his voice:
to God be praise; in God we shall rejoice.
11 (All) Glory to God, Creator, Savior, Friend,
whose greatness, love, and wisdom never end.
