1 Where'er His creatures gather
The unseen God is near;
Let rulers fear their Ruler,
Their Judge let judges fear.
How long, ye earthly judges,
Will ye pervert the right?
How long shall wicked persons
Have favor in your sight?

2 Do justice for the helpless,
The orphan's cause maintain;
Defend the poor and needy,
Oppressed and wronged for gain.
When rulers walk in darkness,
When judges truth forsake,
The cornerstones are crumbled,
The firm foundations shake.

3 The Most High God has called you
And set you up on high,
But ye to Him must answer,
For ye like men must die.
Arise, O God Eternal,
Thou Judge of all the earth,
Through all Thy ransomed nations
Send now Thy justice forth.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
