PSALM 82

L. M.

God the supreme Governor; or, Magistrates warned.

143

Among th' assemblies of the great

A greater Ruler takes his seat;

The God of heav'n, as Judge, surveys

Those gods on earth, and all their ways.

Why will ye, then, frame wicked laws?

Or why support th' unrighteous cause?

When will ye once defend the poor,

That sinners vex the saints no more?

They know not, Lord, nor will they know;

Dark are the ways in which they go;

Their name of earthly gods is vain,

For they shall fall and die like men.

Arise, O Lord, and let thy Son

Possess his universal throne,

And rule the nations with his rod;

He is our Judge, and he our God.
