102b. Thou shalt arise, and mercy have

1 Thou shalt arise and mercy have
Upon Thy Zion yet;
The time to favour her is come,
The time that thou hast set.

2 For in her rubbish and her stones
Thy servants pleasure take;
Yea, they the very dust thereof
Do favour for her sake.

3 So shall the heathen people fear
The Lord’s most holy name;
And all the kings on earth shall dread
Thy glory and Thy fame.

4 For Zion by the mighty Lord
Built up again shall be,
Then shall her gracious God appear
In glorious majesty.
