82Psalm 82CM
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!
