Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 2 hymnals Hymnal Title: Calvin Hymnary Project First Line: Judge me, O God, and plead my cause Against a godless race Lyrics: 1 Judge me, O God, and plead my cause Against a godless race; From men deceitful and unjust Deliver in Thy grace, Deliver in Thy grace. 2 O Thou the God of all my strength, Why hast Thou cast me off? Why go I mourning all the day, While foes oppress and scoff, While foes oppress and scoff? 3 O send Thou forth Thy light and truth, Let them be guides to me, And bring me to Thy holy hill, Thy dwelling-place to see, Thy dwelling-place to see. 4 Then will I to God's altar go, To God, my boundless joy; Yea, God, my God, Thy Name to praise My harp I will employ, My harp I will employ. 5 Why art thou then cast down, my soul, What should discourage thee? And why with vexing thoughts art thou Disquieted in me, Disquieted in me? 6 Hope thou in God; His praise shall yet My thankful lips employ; He is the spring of all my health, My God, my boundless joy, My God, my boundless joy. The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912

Hymnal Title: The Cyber Hymnal Author of "Judge Me, O God, and Plead My Cause (Psalter)" in The Cyber Hymnal In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries.
