Psalm for Tuesday in the First Week of Advent
Psalm 72:1 - 8
1 Give the King your justice, O God,*
and your righteousness to the King's son;
2 That he may rule your people righteously*
and the poor with justice.
3 That the mountains may bring prosperity to the people,*
an the little hills bring righteousness.
4 He shall defend the needy among the people;*
he shall rescue the poor and crush the oppressor.
5 He shall live as long as the sun and moon endure,*
from one generation to another.
6 He shall come down like rain upon the mown field,*
like showers that water the earth.
7 In his time shall the righteous flourish;*
there shall be abundance of peace till the moon shall be no more.
8 He shall rule from sea to sea,*
and from the River to the ends of the earth.
