Wake up! Arouse yourself to vindicate me and argue my case, my God and my Lord.
Wake up! Why are you asleep, Lord? Get up! Don't cast us off forever!
You, LORD God of the Heavenly Armies, God of Israel, stir yourself up to punish all the nations. Show no mercy to those wicked transgressors. Interlude
"Awake! Awake! Clothe yourself with strength, you arm of the LORD! Awake, as in days gone by, as in generations of long ago. Was it not you who split apart Rehob, who pierced that sea monster through?
Without any fault on my part, they rush together and prepare themselves. Get up! Come help me! Pay attention!
The LORD awoke as though from sleep, like a mighty warrior stimulated by wine.
Be silent, every living thing, in the presence of the LORD, because he is emerging from his Holy Place."
