Lord, you put people around about
you set them all in place.
You prosper and exalt them
you humble and disgrace.
You show yourself Holy
your Word you never transgress;
a people who obey you
you promised to always bless.
The nations all are subject
to the Holy King alone
and every individual
will appear before your throne.
To the one who has been given much
much will be required,
and if they have not used it well
they’ll find that they are fired!
