Arise for our help
Or, "arise our help" F19. God is the help of his people, and he is a present help in time of trouble; and he is the only one; and he can help and does, when none else can;
and redeem us for thy mercies' sake;
not for the sake of her integrity and faithfulness; nor for her sufferings for Christ's sake; but for his grace and mercy's sake, which is the source and spring of redemption or deliverance, both temporal and spiritual; and to that the saints ascribe it, and not to any merit of theirs, or works of righteousness done by them.
