Verse 1
Why dost Thou stand afar,
O Lord, in our distress?
And why dost Thou conceal Thyself
When troublous times oppress?

Verse 2
Do Thou, O Lord, arise;
O God, lift up Thy hand;
Forget Thou not the suff'ring poor,
The humble in the land.

Verse 3
Their foes Thou dost behold,
Their wrongs Thou wilt repay;
The poor commit themselves to Thee,
Thou art the orphans' stay.

Verse 4
Thou, Lord, hast heard their prayer
When humble hearts drew nigh;
Thou also wilt revive their strength
And ever hear their cry.

Verse 5
Defend the fatherless
And all who are oppressed,
That they by human pride and pow'r
May be no more distressed.
