Give your king your justice, O God,
And your righteousness to a king’s son.
May he judge your people with righteousness, and your poor with justice.
May the mountains yield prosperity for the people.
May he defend the cause of the poor of the people,
Give deliverance to the needy, and crush the oppressor.
May he live while the sun endures,
And as long as the moon, throughout all generations.
May he be like rain that falls on the mown grass,
Like showers that water the earth.
In his days may righteousness flourish and peace abound,
Until the moon is no more.
Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
Who alone does wondrous things.
Blessed be his glorious name forever;
May his glory fill the whole earth. Amen and amen. Psalm 72:1-7, 18-19
