In his days

Psalm 71

  • Refrain:
    In his days
    justice shall flourish,
    and peace till the moon fails.
  1. O God, give your judgement to the king;
    to the king's son your justice
    that he may rule your people in justice,
    in right judge-ment.
  2. In his days justice shall flourish
    and peace till the moon fails;
    he shall rule from sea to sea,
    o'er the earth's boundaries.
  3. For he shall save the poor when they cry,
    the needy who are helpless;
    he'll have pity on the weak
    and save the lives of the poor.
  4. May his name be blessed for ever
    and endure like the sun;
    ev'ryone be blessed in him,
    all na-tions bless the Lord!
