Using the Message version of Psalm 10and Rise Up in reference/deference to Andra Day – Rise Up [Official Music Video] [Inspiration Version]
h


1-2 God, are you avoiding me? Where are you when I need you? Rise up, Lord! God, lift up your hand! Full of hot air, the wicked are hot on the trail of the poor.Trip them up, tangle them up in their fine-tuned plots. Rise up, Lord! God, lift up your hand!
9 They mark the luckless, then wait like a hunter in a blind;When the poor wretch wanders too close, they stab him in the back.
Rise up, Lord! God, lift up your hand!
11He thinks God has dumped him, he’s sure that God is indifferent to his plight. 12Time to get up, God—get moving. The luckless think they’re Godforsaken.
Rise up, Lord! God, lift up your hand!
14 But you know all about it—the contempt, the abuse..16 Search and destroy every sign of crime.
Rise up, Lord! God, lift up your hand!
16God’s grace and order wins; godlessness loses.
17-18 The victim’s faint pulse picks up; the hearts of the hopeless pump red blood as you hear their cries.
Rise up, Lord! God, lift up your hand!
