words by Adam Carlill
music by Greg Scheer
1. Fools deny their God within them,
while they work unrighteous mayhem;
there is no-one virtuous.
Then our God from heaven descended,
and our nature comprehended:
was there thought or thirst for God?
2. All have gone astray together,
fraudulent in their endeavour,
no-one upright here at all.
Wicked-doers have no knowledge,
as they swallow those in bondage.
They do not proclaim their God.
3. All the wicked shall be daunted,
and by fear and terror haunted,
shattered bones and empty camps.
You, my God, have scorned the vicious,
and their cruel, vain, ambitious
plans; you have rejected them.
4. Who will give relief from Zion,
freeing captives from their prison?
May his people all rejoice!
