Arise, oh Lord God of vengeance
God of justice, now shine forth
Rise up oh Lord, and judge of all the earth
Render recompense unto them for their works
So how long for the wicked
How long shall evil ones rejoice?
In arrogance they speak, and they pour forth all their words
So how long will they still vaunt themselves oh Lord?
He who plants the ear, does he not hear?
He who forms the eye, does he not see?
He who chastens nations, will he not rebuke?
Arise oh God of justice, now arise, arise, arise.
See how they crush your people, Lord?
And afflict your heritage?
They'll even slay the widow, and the stranger on his way
As they murder orphans, still you'll hear them say
They say, "See, the Lord doesn't see
The God of Jacob won't take heed"
But now take heed all you senseless
All your thoughts are but a breath
You stupid ones, when will you understand?
