Hymn/Song Information

Among the assemblies of the great A greater Ruler




Among th' assemblies of the great
A greater Ruler takes his seat;
The God of heaven, 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.


---Alternative verses---


Among th' assemblies of the great
A greater Ruler takes his seat;
The God of heaven, as Judge, surveys
The kings of earth, and all their ways.


Why should they, then, frame wicked laws?
Or why support th' unrighteous cause?
When will they cease t'oppress the poor?
When will they vex the saints no more?
