A Psalm for Solomon

Appears in 2 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 72 First Line: O God, Thy judgments give the King Lyrics: 1 O GOD, Thy judgments give the KING, Thy righteousness give to his SON: 2 Then he'll thy people rightly judge And to thy poor see justice done. 3 The mountains shall abundantly To all the people bring forth peace; The little hills abound With joyful fruits of righteousness. 4 Poor of the people he will judge, And children of the needy save: He will to pieces break all those Who with their fraud oppressed have. 5 They shall Thee fear while sun and moon Endure, thro' generations all: 6 Like rain on mown grass he will come, As show'rs on earth distilling fall. 7 The righteous shall lift up their heads, Rejoyce and flourish in his reign; And till the moon to shine shall cease, He will abundant peace maintain. 8 His great and bless'd dominion shall Abroad from sea to sea extend; and from the river it shall reach Quite to the earth's remotest end. 9 They in the wilderness who dwell, In homage bow before him must; His foes shall, falling at his feet, In low prostration lick the dust. 10 The kings of Tarshish and the Isles, To him shall costly presents bring; Sheba's, and Seba's kings their gifts To him as their superior King. 11 Yea all the kings throughout the earth, To him shall bow, and homage pay; And all the nations of the world Shall Him as the supream obey. 12 Because he will the needy save, When they to him for succour call, Those who afflicted are, and those, Who have no human help at all. 13 The feeble and necessitous, He will in tender pity spare; He will preserve and save the souls Of those who poor and needy are. 14 Their souls from fraud and violence His pow'r and mercy will redeem; And in his eyes their blood shall be Of precious worth and high esteem. 15 Long shall he live; and they shall bring To him of Sheba's finest gold: Pray'rs shall be always made for him, And daily he shall be extoll'd. 16 Of corn an handful in the earth Tho' on the tops of mountains sown, The fruit shall rise, increase and wave Like the tall trees of Lebanon. And they who in the city dwell Shall greatly flourish and abound, In numbers like the fertile grass, Which grows upon the richest ground. 17 His name for ever shall endure, And shall continue as the sun; In him all nations shall be blest, And him proclaim the BLESSED ONE. 18 O let JEHOVAH blessed be, The GOD, the God of Israel: For by Himself alone he works Such things as wond'rous are to tell. 19 O let his glorious name be bless'd Eternal as his happy reign: And let his glory fill the earth: Repeat aloud, AMEN, AMEN. [Common Metre] 18 O let the LORD GOD blessed be, the GOD of Israel: For by Himself alone he works, things wonderful to tell. 19 O let his glorious name be bless'd, eternal as his reign; And let his glory fill the earth: repeat, AMEN, AMEN.

The second Part: 11 All kings shall seek with one accord, in his good grace to stand: And all the people of the world, shall serve him at his hand. 12 For he the needy sort doth save that unto him do call: And eke the simple folk that have no help of man at all. 13 He taketh pity on the poore, that are with need opprest: He doth preserve them evermore, and bring their soules to rest. 14 He shall redeem their souls from dread from fraud, from wrong, and might: And eke the blood that they shall bleed is precious in his sight. 15 But he shall live and they shall bring to him of Sabaes gold: He shall be honoured as a King, and daily be extold. 16 The mighty mountaines of his land of corne shall bear such throng: That it like Cedar trees shall stand, in Libanus full long. 17 Their Cities eke full well shall speed, the fruits thereof shall passe: In plenty it shall far exceed, and spring as green as grasse. 18 For ever they shall praise his Name, while that the Sun is light: And think them happy through the same all folk shall blesse his might. 19 Praise ye the Lord of hosts, and sing to Israels God each one: For he doth every wondrous thing, yea he himself alone. 20 And blessed be his holy Name all times eternally: That all the earth may praise the same, Amen, Amen, say I.

Like showers on meadows newly mown

Meter: Appears in 2 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 72:6 Lyrics: 1 Like showers on meadows newly mown, Jesus shall shed his blessing down, Crown'd with whose life-infusing drops, Earth shall renew her blissful crops. 2 Lands that beneath a burning sky, Have long been desolate and dry, Th' effusions of his love shall share, And sudden greens and herbage wear. 3 The dews and rains in all their store, Drenching the pastures o'er and o'er, Are not so copious as that grace Which sanctifies and saves our race. 4 As in soft silence vernal showers, Descend and cheer the fainting flowers, So in the secrecy of love, Falls the sweet influence from above. 5 That heavenly influence let me find In holy silence of the mind, While every grace maintains its bloom, Diffusing wide its rich perfume. 6 Nor let these blessings be confin'd To me, but pour'd on all mankind, 'Till earth's wild waste in verdure rise, And a youg Eden bless our eyes.

It came upon the midnight clear

Author: Edmund Hamilton Sears, 1810-1876 Meter: D Appears in 781 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 72:7 Lyrics: 1 It came upon the midnight clear, that glorious song of old, from angels bending near the earth to touch their harps of gold: 'Peace on the earth, good-will to all, from heav'n's all-gracious King!' The world in solemn stillness lay, to hear the angels sing. 2 Still through the cloven skies they come, with peaceful wings unfurled; and still their heav'nly music floats o'er all the weary world; above its sad and lowly plains they bend on hov'ring wing; and ever o'er its Babel-sounds the blessed angels sing. 3 Yet with the woes of sin and strife the world has suffered long; beneath the angel-strain have rolled two thousand years of wrong; and warring humankind hears not the love-song which they bring; O just the noise of mortal strife, and hear the angels sing! 4 And ye, beneath life's crushing load, whose forms are bending low, who toil along the climbing way with painful steps and slow: look now! for glad and golden hours come swiftly on the wing, O rest beside the weary road, and hear the angels sing. 5 For lo! the days are hast'ning on, by prophets seen of old, when with the ever-circling years comes round the age of gold; when peace shall over all the earth its ancient splendours fling, and the whole world send back the song which now the angels sing.
