Awake, and rise to my defence! Contend for me, my God and Lord.
Stir up Yourself, and awake to my right And to my cause, my God and my Lord.
Wake up! Rise to my defense! Take up my case, my God and my Lord.
Please get up--wake up! Tend to my case. My God, my Lord--my life is on the line.
Be awake, O Lord, be moved to take up my cause, my God and my Lord.
Wake up! Bestir yourself for my defense, for my cause, my God and my Lord!
Stir up Yourself, and awake to my vindication, To my cause, my God and my Lord.
