During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Psalm 72 Part 2

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 1,654 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 72 First Line: Jesus shall reign where'er the sun Lyrics: Jesus shall reign where'er the sun Does his successive journeys run; His kingdom stretch from shore to shore, Till moons shall wax and wane no more. [Behold the islands with their kings, And Europe her best tribute brings; From north to south the princes meet, To pay their homage at his feet. There Persia, glorious to behold, There India shines in eastern gold; And barb'rous nations at his word Submit, and bow, and own their Lord.] For him shall endless prayer be made, And praises throng to crown his head; His name like sweet perfume shall rise With every morning sacrifice. People and realms of every tongue Dwell on his love with sweetest song; And infant voices shall proclaim Their early blessings on his name. Blessings abound where'er he reigns, The pris'ner leaps to lose his chains; The weary find eternal rest, And all the sons of want are blest. [Where he displays his healing power Death and the curse are known no more; In him the tribes of Adam boast More blessings than their father lost. Let every creature rise and bring Peculiar honors to our King; Angels descend with songs again, And earth repeat the long Amen.] Topics: Christ exalted to the kingdom; Exaltation of Christ to the kingdom; Gentiles given to Christ; Gentiles church; Christ his kingdom among the Gentiles

Psalm 72 Part 1

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 190 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 72 First Line: Great God, whose universal sway Lyrics: Great God, whose universal sway The known and unknown worlds obey, Now give the kingdom to thy Son, Extend his power, exalt his throne. Thy sceptre well becomes his hands, All heav'n submits to his commands; His justice shall avenge the poor, And pride and rage prevail no more. With power be vindicates the just, And treads th' oppressor in the dust; His worship and his fear shall last, Till hours, and years, and time be past. As rain on meadows newly mown, So shall he send his influence down; His grace on fainting souls distils, Like heav'nly dew on thirsty hills. The heathen lands that lie beneath The shades of overspreading death, Revive at his first dawning light, And deserts blossom at the sight. The saints shall flourish in his days, Dressed in the robes of joy and praise Peace, like a river from his throne, Shall flow to nations yet unknown.

Psalm 72: O Lord, thy judgments give the king

Meter: Appears in 27 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 72 First Line: O Lord, thy judgments give the king Lyrics: 1O Lord, thy judgments give the king, his son thy righteousness. 2With right he shall thy people judge, thy poor with uprightness. 3The lofty mountains shall bring forth unto the people peace; Likewise the little hills the same shall do by righteousness. 4The people’s poor ones he shall judge, the needy’s children save; And those shall he in pieces break who them oppressed have. 5They shall thee fear, while sun and moon do last, through ages all. 6Like rain on mown grass he shall drop, or show’rs on earth that fall. 7The just shall flourish in his days, and prosper in his reign: He shall, while doth the moon endure, abundant peace maintain. 8His large and great dominion shall from sea to sea extend: It from the river shall reach forth unto earth’s utmost end. 9They in the wilderness that dwell bow down before him must; And they that are his enemies shall lick the very dust. 10The kings of Tarshish, and the isles, to him shall presents bring; And unto him shall offer gifts Sheba’s and Seba’s king. 11Yea, all the mighty kings on earth before him down shall fall; And all the nations of the world do service to him shall. 12For he the needy shall preserve, when he to him doth call; The poor also, and him that hath no help of man at all. 13The poor man and the indigent in mercy he shall spare; He shall preserve alive the souls of those that needy are. 14Both from deceit and violence their soul he shall set free; And in his sight right precious and dear their blood shall be. 15Yea, he shall live, and giv’n to him shall be of Sheba’s gold: For him still shall they pray, and he shall daily be extoll’d. 16Of corn an handful in the earth on tops of mountains high, With prosp’rous fruit shall shake, like trees on Lebanon that be. The city shall be flourishing, her citizens abound In number shall, like to the grass that grows upon the ground. 17His name for ever shall endure; last like the sun it shall: Men shall be bless’d in him, and bless’d all nations shall him call. 18Now blessed be the Lord our God, the God of Israel, For he alone doth wondrous works, in glory that excel. 19And blessed be his glorious name to all eternity: The whole earth let his glory fill. Amen, so let it be.
