Author: J. H. Appears in 3 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 82 First Line: Amid the presse with men of might Lyrics: 1 Amid the presse with men of might the Lord himselfe doth stand, To plead the cause of truth and right, with judges of the land. 2 How long (said he) will you proceed, false judgement to award And have respect for love of meed, the wicked to regard. 3 Whereas of due you should defend the fatherlesse and weak: And when the poore man doth contend, in judgement justly speak. 4 If ye be wise, defend the cause of poore men in their right: And rid the needy from the clawes of tyrants force and might. 5 But nothing will they know or learne, in vaine to them I talk: They will not see, or ought discerne, but still in darknesse walk. For lo, even now the time is come, that all things fall to nought: And likewise lawes both all and some, for gaine are sold and bought. I had decreed it my sight, as gods to take you all: And children to the most of might, for love I did you call. 7 But notwithstanding ye shall die as men, and so decay: O tyrants I shall you destroy, and pluck you quite away. 8 Up, Lord, and let thy strength be known, and judge the world with might: For why? all nations are thy own, to take them as thy right.

We Give Thee but Thine Own

Author: William Walsham How Meter: Appears in 414 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 82:3 Lyrics: 1 We give thee but thine own, whate’er the gift may be; all that we have is thine alone, a trust, O Lord, from thee. 2 May we thy bounties thus as stewards true receive, and gladly, as thou blessest us, to thee our first-fruits give. 3 To comfort and to bless, to find a balm for woe, to tend the lone and orphaned ones is angels’ work below. 4 The captive to release, to God the lost to bring, to teach the way of life and peace, it is a Christ-like thing. 5 And we believe thy word, though dim our faith may be; whate’er for thine we do, O Lord, we do it unto thee.
