Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

P82. Among th' Assemblies of the Great

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.

3 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.
