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.

PLXXXII. A Psalm of Asaph

1 The mighty God doth stand within
Th' assembly of the strong
And he it is that righteously
Doth judge the gods among.
2 Give judgment of unrighteousness
How long a time will ye?
Will ye accept the countenance
Of those that wicked be?

3 See that the needy ye defend,
Also the fatherless:
Unto th' afflicted justice do,
And to them in distress.
4 The wasted poor and those that are
In need deliver ye:
And them redeem out of the hand
Of such as wicked be.

5 They know not, nor will understand,
In darkness they walk on.
The earth's foundations all of them
quite out of course are gone.
6 I said that ye were gods, likewise,
Sons of the highest all:
7 But ye shall die like men, and like
One of the princes fall.

8 That thou may'st judge the earth, O God,
Do thou thy self advance:
For thou shalt have the nations all
For thine inheritance.
