UPLIFTER OF
MY SOUL, ARISE!
by Eva

Plead my cause, O' Righteous One!
Thou art my Sword and Shield.
Hear my prayer; be my help!
To Thee, L-RD, my soul doth yield.
Confound all them who seek my hurt
Through their slanderous and murderous lies!
Confound them all; put them to shame!
Uplifter of my soul, arise!
"BUT LET ALL THOSE 
THAT PUT THEIR TRUST
IN THEE  REJOICE; 
LET THEM EVER  SHOUT 
FOR JOY,  BECAUSE 
THOU DEFENDEST THEM:  
LET THEM ALSO
THAT LOVE THY NAME
BE JOYFUL IN THEE"

(Psalm 4:11)
