The Lord shall endure for ever: He hath prepared His throne for judgment. And He shall judge the world in righteousness, He shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.@Psalm 9:7-8

Paraphrase of Psalm 9.

Stroudwater, from Wilkins’ Psalmody, circa 1730 (🔊 pdf nwc).

The Lord forever sits as king;
For judgment sets His throne;
In righteousness to judge the world,
And justice give each one.

So shall the Lord a refuge be
For those that are oppressed;
A refuge will He be for them,
What time they are distressed.

And they that know Thy name in Thee
Their confidence will place:
For Thou hast not forsaken them
That truly seek Thy face.

O sing ye praises to the Lord
That dwells in Zion hill;
Among the peoples everywhere
His deeds declare ye still.
