God will arise because the weak are crying,
God will arise because the needy call,
God will arise who knows and loves them all.
1 Flawless are God's mighty words
silver forged in fire,
shaming every evil tongue,
every dark desire.

2 When the wicked strut about,
when they take the sword,
hear your people in their pain,
come to us, O Lord!

After Psalm 12, Michael Perry (1942 - 1996)
