Let God arise,
and let his enemies be scattered,
Like as smoke vanisheth,
as wax melteth at the fire,
So let them perish,
and be driven away.
O God! when thou wentest forth,
the earth shook,
and the heavens dropped,
at the presence of God,
e'en the God of Israel.
Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth:
O sing praises unto the Lord.
sing praises unto him,
who is the God of our Salvation.
He is a father of the fatherless;
he bringeth the prisoners out of captivity.
Blessed be God,
Hallelujah
