Hymn/Song Information

God in the great assembly stands where




God in the great assembly stands,
where his impartial eye
In state surveys the earthly gods,
and does their judgments try.


How dare you then unjustly judge,
or be to sinners kind?
Defend the orphans and the poor,
let such your justice find.


Protect the humble helpless man,
reduced to deep distress,
And let not him become a prey
to such as would oppress.


They neither know, nor will they learn,
but blindly rove and stray;
Justice and truth, the world's support,
through all the land decay.


Well then might God in anger say,
"I've called you by my Name;
"I've said, Y'are gods, the sons and heirs
of my immortal fame.


"But ne'ertheless your unjust deeds
to strict account I'll call;
"You all shall die like common men,
like other tyrants fall."


Arise, and thy just judgments, Lord,
throughout the earth display;
And all the nations of the world
shall own thy righteous sway.
