Psalm 72. Deus, judicium.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Fourteenth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. GIVE the King thy judgments, O God, *
    and thy righteousness unto the King's son.
  2. Then shall he judge thy people according unto right, *
    and defend the poor.
  3. The mountains also shall bring peace, *
    and the little hills righteousness unto the people.
  4. He shall keep the simple folk by their right, *
    defend the children of the poor, and punish the wrong doer.
  5. They shall fear thee, as long as the sun and moon endureth, *
    from one generation to another.
  6. He shall come down like the rain upon the mown grass, *
    even as the drops that water the earth.
  7. In his time shall the righteous flourish; *
    yea, and abundance of peace, so long as the moon endureth.
  8. His dominion shall be also from the one sea to the other, *
    and from the River unto the world's end.
  9. They that dwell in the wilderness shall kneel before him; *
    his enemies shall lick the dust.
  10. The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall give presents; *
    the kings of Arabia and Saba shall bring gifts.
  11. All kings shall fall down before him; *
    all nations shall do him service.
  12. For he shall deliver the poor when he crieth; *
    the needy also, and him that hath no helper.
  13. He shall be favourable to the simple and needy, *
    and shall preserve the souls of the poor.
  14. He shall deliver their souls from falsehood and wrong; *
    and dear shall their blood be in his sight.
  15. He shall live, and unto him shall be given of the gold of Arabia; *
    prayer shall be made ever unto him, and daily shall he be praised.
  16. There shall be an heap of corn in the earth, high upon the hills ; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: *
    and they of the city shall flourish like grass upon the earth.
  17. His Name shall endure for ever; his Name shall remain under the sun among the posterities, which shall be blessed in him; *
    and all the nations shall praise him.
  18. Blessed be the Lord God, even the God of Israel, *
    which only doeth wondrous things;
  19. And blessed be the Name of his majesty for ever: *
    and all the earth shall be filled with his majesty. Amen
