|THE kings of earth are in the hands
Of God Who reigns on high;
Above their thoughts and acts He stands,
And none escape His eye.
|2||Though rulers cruel oppressors prove,
To tread the godly down,
And law and justice all remove,
The Lord retains His crown.
|3||Though filled with arrogance and pride
They rule, as gods, the land,
From God the Judge they cannot hide,
Nor counter His command.
|4||When God at last removes their breath,
They’ll cower before His throne;
And in that awful hour of death
Know Who is God alone!
