Representative Text

1 O God, be Thy Anointed Son
With truth and righteousness endowed,
That justice may on earth be done,
The meek protected from the proud.

2 Then over mountain side and plain
Shall peace spring forth from righteousness;
The poor man's cause will He maintain,
And save the week, that none oppress.

3 Then shall Thy fear on earth be known
Long as the sun and moon shall shine;
While endless generations run
Kingdom and glory shall be Thine.

4 Like copious rain in time of dearth,
So shall His gracious coming be;
As gentle show'rs that cheer the earth,
So He shall bring prosperity.

5 The just shall flourish in His day,
And evermore shall peace extend;
From sea to sea shall be His sway,
And to the earth's remotest end.

6 The desert lands to Him shall bow,
And all the islands of the sea,
And kings with gifts shall pay their vow,
His enemies shall bend the knee.

7 In great compassion for the weak
He ever will maintain their right,
Will help the poor and save the meek;
Their lives are precious in His sight.
