Arise - A Prayer For Peace (You hear, O Lord)

Why does God sometimes seem to not be doing anything while arrogant and evil people oppress the weak and helpless? The writer of Psalm 10 wrestles with this problem, begins to see the big picture and starts to pray for justice. I wrote this song for a prayer gathering in London called during the Afghanistan crisis, and based it on verses 12, 17 and 18.

Scriptures:

Psalm 10:12, Psalm 10:17, Psalm 10:18

You hear, O Lord
The desire of the afflicted
You hear, O Lord
You give them strength
And listen to their cry
You hear, O Lord
Defending the fatherless
And the oppressed
That they may live in fear no more

Arise Lord! Lift up your hand,
God of mercy save the helpless
Show your kindness
Arise O Lord! Reach out to save
Arise O God

Arise Lord! Lift up your hand,
God of mercy save the helpless
Show your kindness
Arise O Lord! Reach out to save
Arise O God
Arise O God
Hear our prayer
(extemporare prayer)
