1 We have heard, O Lord our God,
the story of your grace:
and how you gave to us this land,
defending us with your right hand
and showing us your face.

2 You are great, O Lord our God,
we trusted in your name;
we did not triumph by the sword,
but through the victory of your word
you put our foes to shame.

3 Yet today, O Lord our God,
the weak who once were strong
cry out to you, 'O come, arise,
reveal your light to darkened eyes,
and turn our sighs to song!'

After Psalm 44, Michael Perry (1942 - 1996)
