Arise (Re-posted as a Weekly Post)

Our fathers have told us
The things You have done
Your hand fought their battles
‘Til vict’ry was won

Their sword was found futile
Their hand had no might
Save that Your face shone
Upon them its light

You are my Savior
From foe and from grave
Bows are not trustworthy
Nor does sword save

Arise from Your slumber
From sleeping, awake!
Arise and redeem us
For Your kindness’ sake

See Numbers 31 and Psalm 44
