Arise My Soul

12 But you, O LORD, are set

For ever on your throne; 

Through each succeeding age

Endures your great renown. 

13 You will arise in mighty power; 

On Zion mercy you will shower. 

The set time now has come

To bless Jerusalem. 

14 Her stones your saints hold dear; 

Her dust is mourned by them. 

15 Nations will fear your name, O LORD; 

All kings on earth your praise record.

16 For God will yet appear

In glorious might to reign; 

The LORD in grace will build

Jerusalem again. 

17 The prayers of the poor he'll heed; 

He will not spurn their cry of need. 

18 Let this be written down 

to teach a future race, 

So people yet unborn 

May magnify his grace:

19 That from his holy place above

The LORD looked down in tender love.

From heav'n he viewed the earth 

Observing all mankind, 

20 To hear the groans of those 

In prison cells confined, 

And to deliver from on high 

A multitude condemned to die.  

21 In Zion will be praised

The LORD's exalted name; 

His praises will be sung

Within Jerusalem, 

22 When peoples and their kingdoms throng

To serve the LORD with cheerful song.
