    Verse 1
    ''By whom, Lord, shall Jacob arise?''
    His friends are very few,
    What is surprising is this that
    They are not e'en agreed.

    Verse 2
    ''By who, Lord, shall Jacob arise?''
    His enemies are cruel
    They joy as if they have triumphed
    And said, ''He is finished.''

    Verse 3
    ''By whom, Lord, shall Jacob arise?''
    Can anybody say?
    The dried up branch there on the ground
    Can it bloom any more?

    Verse 4
    O Lord my God, it is Thy work
    No one else can do it;
    Descend like the dew on Jacob
    And Jacob shall arise.
