Psalm 72.1-7, 72.18-21
1 Give the king your judgement, O God:
and your righteousness to the son of a king,
2 That he may judge your people rightly:
and the poor of the land with equity.
3 Let the mountains be laden with peace
because of his righteousness:
and the hills also with prosperity for his people.
4 May he give justice to the poor among the people:
and rescue the children of the needy,
and crush the oppressor.
5 May he live while the sun endures:
and while the moon gives light,
throughout all generations.
6 May he come down like rain upon the new-mown fields:
and as showers that water the earth.
7 In his time shall righteousness flourish:
and abundance of peace, till the moon shall be no more.
18 Let his name live for ever:
and endure as long as the sun.
19 Let all peoples use his name in blessing:
and all nations call him blessed.
20 Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel:
who alone does great wonders.
21 Blessed be his glorious name for ever:
and let the whole earth be filled with his glory.
