Arise, my gracious God

Isaac Watts, 1674-1748

Arise, my gracious God,
And make the wicked flee;
They are but thy chastising rod,
To drive thy saints to thee.

2. Behold, the sinner dies,
His haughty words are vain;
Here in this life his pleasure lies,
And all beyond is pain.

3. Then let his pride advance,
And boast of all his store;
The Lord is my inheritance,
My soul can wish no more.

4. I shall behold the face
Of my forgiving God;
And stand complete in righteousness,
Washed in my Savior's blood.

5. There's a new heav'n begun,
When I awake from death,
Dressed in the likeness of thy Son,
And draw immortal breath.
