In His holy place
God the Father of orphans and Defender of widows
Provides a home for the desolate
And leads out prisoner to prosperity.
There from dust He raises the poor,
And the needy from ash heaps
That they may sit with royalty.
Stones builders reject,
He makes prophets of God.
With faithfulness, crush the oppressor;
With compassion, deliver the needy;
With justice, defend the poor.
Prosper our fields with all latter rains.
For a harvest of righteousness.
