Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will on Earth

Psalm 72 is a Psalm for our time.

The prayer of a father for his son's reign.
And at the same time, the heart of God for the Messianic King of Kings.

A justice where the greatest looks out for the least.

A justice so perfect, so encompassing
that even the earth responds with unrestrained fruitfulness.

A justice so contagious, so powerful,
it overpowers all enemies without weapons of war.

A justice so amazing it unites all mankind in perfect peace.

His Kingdom comes.
His will on earth as it is in heaven.

Let our voices pray so,
And our hearts long for.
