Who Will Arise And Plead My Right


Who will arise and plead my right
and guard from numerous foes?
When earth and hell increase my plight,
my anxious worry grows!
“God, hold my sliding feet,” I cried.
“Your statutes are my stay;
your mercies, constant by my side,
must guide me in your way.

“God, no attacks of mournful thoughts
can shake my inner peace.
Your love protects from others’ faults;
your guidance does not cease.
No works of mischief can arise
to set aside your laws,
for you, our refuge, rule the skies!
God, you defend my cause.”
