Vs. 126 — It is time for You to act, O Lord, For they have regarded Your law as void.
It is time for You to act, O Lord, for they have regarded Your law as void. I see the violent oppression against Your people, on the weak, and on the innocent by the hands of the wicked. Their hands drip with blood and their eyes search for more victims. They murder and enslave; they trample down and throw away the spirits of those who are made in Your image as if they were mere garbage. These lovers of violence hate Your ways. They hate justice and life. They challenge Your crown, Your throne. When will You bring vengeance and retribution? When will you bring an end to the perverse acts of Your enemies? Call Your elect from the four corners of the earth and come, Lord Jesus, come quickly. Amen.
