Psalm 72:1-7;18-19

Give the King your justice, O God, *
   and your righteousness to the King’s Son;

That he may rule your people righteously *
   and the poor with justice;

That the mountains may bring prosperity to the people, *
   and the little hills bring righteousness.

He shall defend the needy among the people; *
   he shall rescue the poor and crush the oppressor.

He shall live as long as the sun and moon endure, *
   from one generation to another.

He shall come down like rain upon the mown field, *
   like showers that water the earth.

In his time shall the righteous flourish; *
   there shall be abundance of peace till the moon shall be no more.

Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, *
   who alone does wondrous deeds!

And blessed be his glorious Name for ever! *
   and may all the earth be filled with his glory.
   Amen. Amen.
