Psalm: Epiphany


All nations shall fall prostrate before you, O Lord.

O God, give your judgement to the king, to a king's son your justice,
that he may judge your people in justice and your poor in right judgement.

In his days justice shall flourish and peace till the moon fails.
He shall rule from sea to sea, from the Great River to earth's bounds.

The kings of Tarshish and the seacoasts shall pay him tribute.
The kings of Sheba and Seba shall bring him gifts.
Before him all rulers shall fall prostrate, all nations shall serve him.

For he shall save the poor when they cry and the needy who are helpless.
He will have pity on the weak and save the lives of the poor.

Ps 71:1-2. 7-8. 10-13. R. cf. v.11
