Words: Isaac Watts
God the supreme Governor; or, Magistrates warned:
1 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.
2 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?
3 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.
4 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.
