Psalm 72 refreshed – Duncan Wilson, UK

Tapestry, Windermere Centre, Cumbria UK

Written for Epiphany, Year C

Teach your Chosen One, O God,
how to rule your people with justice
and how to govern with gentleness
the people who stagger under heavy loads.

May your Chosen One judge fairly
and give attention to the people most in need.

May your Chosen One be like showers of rain on the fields,
may all the land enjoy such careful attention.

May all that is good flourish under your leadership
and everything prosper beneath your light.

So may your people worship you
for as long as the sun and moon shine in the sky.
