God in the great Assembly stands

Appears in 9 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 82 Lyrics: 1 God in the great Assembly stands, where his impartial Eye In State surveys the earthen Gods, and does their Judgments try. 2,3 How Dare ye then unjustly judge, or be to sinners kind? Defend the Orphans, and the Poor: let such your Justice find. 4 Protect the humble helpless Man reduc'd to deep Distress, And let not him become a Prey to such as would oppress. 5 They neither know, nor will they learn, but blindly rove and stray: Justice and Truth, the world's great Props, thro' all the Land decay. 6 Well then might God in Anger say, "I've call'd ye by my Name: "I've said y'are God's, the Sons and Heirs "of my immortal Fame: 7 "But ne'ertheless your unjust Deeds "to strict Account I'll call: "You all shall die like common Men, "like other Tyrants fall." 8 Arise, and thy just Judgments, Lord, throughout the Earth display; And all the Nations of the world shall own thy righteous Sway.

We Give Thee but Thine Own

Author: William Walsham How Meter: Appears in 456 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.
