Help us, O Lord, the righteous all have vanished

Help us, O Lord, the righteous all have vanished,
now in their place are those who peddle lies.
They boast in tongues from which the truth is banished,
‘We need no lord!’-all lordship they despise.

2. ‘I will arise,’ declares the Lord of glory,
‘for I have heard the groaning of the poor;
the cries of fear and pain have come before me;
I will protect; they will be crushed no more.’

3. The words of God are faithful, pure and flawless,
like purest silver well refined by fire.
The Lord will keep and save us from the lawless,
though they are strong, and evil their desire.
