Let God arise (Psalm 68:1-4,19; 76:6; 68:35) – George F. Handel

 

“The Chandos portrait of Georg Friedrich Händel” by James Thornhill, c. 1720

Psalm 68:1-4,19; 76:6; 68:35

Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.

As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.

But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.

Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name Jah, and rejoice before him.

19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.

At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.

35 O God, thou art terrible out of thy holy places: the God of Israel is he that giveth strength and power unto his people. Blessed be God.
