1 Great God, to thee, the mighty King,
Whose sovereign rule the world obeys,
With reverent hearts thy people bring
The tribute of their humble praise.
2 The earth's great sceptre fills thy hand;
And, high enthron'd in majesty,
Thou givest thence to every land
The laws of truth and equity.
3 Unerring justice, Lord, is thine;
And every nation shall confess,
That thy decrees are all divine,
And all thy ways are righteousness.
4 In judgment wise, thou wilt bestow
To eery soul its due reward;
Unceasing joy the good shall know,
And live forever with their Lord.
5 But they who tread the sinner's path,
And dare thy righteous laws disown,
Shall meet with due returns from thee,
And reap the fruit which they have sown.Source: A Collection of Psalms and Hymns for Publick Worship #VI
