Hymn 39Play music
O Lord,Thy judgements give the king,
His Son Thy righteousness;
With right he shall Thy people judge,
Thy poor with uprightness.
The just shall flourish in his days
And prosper in his reign;
He shall, while doth the moon endure,
Abundant peace maintain.
His just and great dominion shall
From sea to sea extend:
It from the river shall reach forth
Unto earth's utmost end.
For he the needy shall preserve
When he to him doth call;
The poor also,and him that hath
No help of man at all.
His name for ever shall endure:
Last like the sun it shall:
Men shall be blessed in him, and blessed
All nations shall him call.
