Kingdom of the King



Tune: Veni Emmanuel

('O come, O come, Emmanuel')

Psalm 72 v.1-8 parts

********

The reign of the Messiah, advent sure

O God, give Him your judgements evermore

And your righteousness, He your Son

He be the holy and the promised One

His name, His name, shall endure for always

He is the Dayspring true through endless days

 

His name Jesus, He shall judge people right

Shall be even as in His Father's sight

And shall bring justice to the poor

His reign shall increase, spread to farthest shore

His name, His name, shall endure for always

He is the Dayspring true through endless days

 

He shall bring peace, bring help to the needy

Shall release people from oppression, see

People shall worship, godly fear

Son of God in human flesh does appear

His name, His name, shall endure for always

He is the Dayspring true through endless days

 

He shall come down like rain upon grass mown

As showers that water the earth, it known

In His days shall righteous flourish

Abundance of peace, satisfy each wish

His name, His name, shall endure for always

He is the Dayspring through through endless day

 

He shall have dominion from sea to sea

And o'er each land His rulership shall be

Help us prepare for your coming

Again, when you your eternal reign bring

His name, His name, shall endure for always

He is the Dayspring true through endless days

        Some think His return is imminent. This world certainly needs a superhuman power to save it.
