Rise Up O Just One lyrics


Lyrics are also available as a 4-page PDF.

1. O Lord of Vengeance (Psalm 94)

O Lord of vengeance, O Lord shine forth!
Rise up, O just one, silence all the proud
How long the wicked sinful man exalts
Pouring out their vain words, evildoers boast
The Lord has become my stronghold
My God and my rock of refuge

They crush your people and afflict your sons
They kill the widow and the sojourner
The fatherless they slaughter, saying he can’t see
Understand, O people, when will you be wise?
The Lord has become my stronghold
My God and my rock of refuge

Blessed is the strong man whom you discipline
To him you give sweet rest; wicked men forsake
Who will fight the wicked, who will strike the foul?
Without God’s outstretched arm, silence will be mine
The Lord has become my stronghold
My God and my rock of refuge

Can the wicked ruler be your allied friend?
Statutes of injustice govern all the land
They all band together loving death not life
Innocents aborted, sentenced to silence
The Lord has become my stronghold
My God and my rock of refuge

Wipe them out Lord Jesus, for their wickedness
Wipe them out Lord Jesus, for their wickedness
The Lord has become my stronghold
My God and my rock of refuge

2. Song of the Lamb
Revelation 15:3-4

Amazing are your deeds (O Lord God Almighty, O Lord God Almighty)
Just and true are your ways (O king of the nations, O king of the nations)
Who will not fear O Lord
And glorify your name
Glorify your name
For you alone are holy

(Repeat)

All nations will come and worship you

For your righteous acts have been revealed (4X)

3. Stricken, Smitten, and Afflicted
Words by Thomas Kelly (1804)

Stricken, smitten, and afflicted,
See Him dying on the tree!
’Tis the Christ by man rejected;
Yes, my soul, ’tis He, ’tis He!
’Tis the long expected Prophet,
David’s Son, yet David’s Lord;
By His Son God now has spoken:
‘Tis the true and faithful Word.

Tell me, ye who hear Him groaning,
Was there ever grief like His?
Friends through fear His cause disowning,
Foes insulting His distress;
Many hands were raised to wound Him,
None would interpose to save;
But the deepest stroke that pierced Him
Was the stroke that Justice gave.

Ye who think of sin but lightly,
Nor suppose the evil great,
Here may view its nature rightly,
Here its guilt may estimate.
Mark the sacrifice appointed,
See Who bears the awful load;
’Tis the Word, the Lord’s Anointed,
Son of Man and Son of God.

Here we have a firm foundation,
Here the refuge of the lost;
Christ’s the Rock of our salvation,
His the Name of which we boast.
Lamb of God for sinners wounded,
Sacrifice to cancel guilt!
None shall ever be confounded
Who on Him their hope have built.

4. Why Do the Heathen Nations Vainly Rage? (Psalm 2)
Adapted for singing by Douglas Wilson

Why do the heathen nations vainly rage?
What prideful schemes are they in vain devising?
The kings of earth and rulers all engage
In evil thoughts and in their sin contriving.
They take their stand against our God’s Messiah,
They claim they will not keep His binding chains;
The Lord enthroned in highest heaven, higher,
Mocks them to scorn, on them derision rains.

He speaks to them in righteous holy wrath;
God vexes them and shows His great displeasure.
“Yet have I set My king upon a path
That upward winds to Zion, my own treasure.
You are my Son, today You are begotten,”
I will declare what God has said to me,
“And not one tribe will ever be forgotten;
You will receive the world, just ask of Me.

“The nations come, You are the only heir,
The ends of earth will be Your own possession;
And, broken with a rod of iron there,
Rebellious pottery comes to destruction.”
Now serve the Lord with fear and gladness trembling,
And, therefore, O ye kings, seek wisdom here:
How blessed are those who trust without dissembling,
Who kiss the Son and bow in reverent fear.

6. Lamentations 3

I am the man who has seen
affliction under God’s wrath
He’s driven me and brought me
Into darkness without light
God is a lion in hiding
He tore me to pieces
My endurance has perished
So has my hope from the Lord
Remember my wanderings
The wormwood and the gall
My soul remembers it and is
Bowed down within me

Chorus:
But this I call to mind, therefore I have hope
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases
His mercies never come to an end
They are new every morning great is your faithfulness O Lord

The Lord is good to those who wait
To the soul who sees him
It is good that one should wait quietly
For salvation of the Lord
It is good for a man that he bear
The yoke in his youth
Let him put his mouth in the dust
There may yet be hope
Is it not from the mouth of the Most High
That good and bad come?
Why should a living man complain
For his sin’s punishment?

Chorus

Let us test and examine
Our ways and return to the Lord
Let us lift up our hearts and
Hands to God in, in heaven
(4X)

7. Cloud of Witnesses
Words by Andrew & Sarah Dionne

As the rain filled up the earth
The righteous man Noah prayed
As the seas opened a way
The humble man Moses sang
As the flames fell from the sky
Elijah praised our great God
They sang,
Hallelujah! He is risen! (3X)
Amen!

As the jaw ripped through the flesh
Strong Samson called to the Lord
Lion’s breath close to his face
Wise Daniel found his reward
Flush with shame, sick with his sin
Lord David turned to his Lord
They sang,
Hallelujah! He is risen! (3X)
Amen!

Not afraid, knowing her Lord,
Obedient Sarah praised
Giving back without complaint
Her precious child, Hannah prayed
With a sword piercing her heart
Young Mary magnified God
They sang,
Hallelujah! He is risen! (3X)
Amen!

Rooster cry echoing still
To-ward the tomb Peter ran
Broken, crushed under the stones
But yet in faith, Stephen gazed
Stunned and blind, Paul met the Lord
Upon the road, and he changed
They sang,
Hallelujah! He is risen! (3X)
Amen!

As the pain took their last breath
The martyrs cried out a psalm
Smoke of hell rises to heaven
Reminding all of Christ’s cross
When we gaze on his bright face
While free from sin, we will sing
We sing,
Hallelujah! He is risen! (3X)
Amen!

8. How Firm a Foundation

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word!
What more can He say than to you He hath said,
You, who unto Jesus for refuge have fled?

Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,
For I am thy God and will still give thee aid;
I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand
Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand.

When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
The rivers of woe shall not thee overflow;
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,
And will sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.

When through fiery trials thy pathways shall lie,
My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply;
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.

The soul that on Jesus has leaned for repose,
I will not, will not desert to its foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, never, no never forsake.

That soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,
I will not, will not desert to his foes;
That soul, though hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, never, no never forsake.

That soul on Jesus that leaneth for repose,
I will not, will not desert to his foes;
That soul, though hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, never, no never forsake.
