View Lyrics
God judges in the midst of gods;
He stands among the strong.
And to the wicked and unjust,
The cry goes out: how long?

Defend the poor and fatherless;
Do justice to the weak.
Deliver from the wicked hand
The needy and the meek.

They neither know nor understand;
In darkness deep they stray.
And the foundations of the earth
Are shaken underway.

I said to them, "You all are gods
And sons of the Most High.
But as the rulers, you shall fall,
And like all men, shall die."

Arise, O God, and judge the earth,
Your great decree assured;
The world as Your inheritance,
And every nation Yours!
