Rulers judged too – Rule kindly!

on Psalm 82

For God assesses and is just,
he’s Judge of every nation,
he’s righteous and omniscient;
with perfect comprehension.

So, you who judge today, and rule, –
for truth you should be caring
(the founding principles for earth) –
an awesome role you’re bearing.

See schemes against the poor, the weak:
defend them from oppression
by wicked people – don’t excuse
the cruel exploitation.

Remember you will die quite soon,
like other men, appear
before God’s throne to give account:
so serve in godly fear.

Tune: 87 87 or 87 87 D
