1 O God, to thy Anointed King
Give truth and righteousness;
Thy people He will justly judge
And give the poor redress.
2 Then every fruitful mountain side
Shall yield its rich increase,
And righteousness in all the land
Shall bear the fruit of peace.
3 The poor man's cause He will maintain,
The needy He will bless,
And He will break the strength of those
Who would the poor oppress.
4 So men shall fear Thee wile the sun
In daily splendor glows,
And through all ages, while the moon
On earth its light bestows.
5 Like rain upon the new-mown grass,
That falls refreshingly,
Like gentle showers that cheer the earth,
So shall His coming be.
6 The righteous in His glorious day
Shall flourish and increase;
The earth, until the moon shall fade,
Shall have abundant peace.
