1 To those who rule our land,
give justice, love and truth;
Lord help them to defend the poor,
to keep us safe, to guard the law,
and prosper at your hand:

2 Let mercy all their days
fall as refreshing showers;
Lord guide the people with your light
that we may flourish in your sight,
and earth be filled with praise!

After Psalm 72, Michael Perry (1942 - 1996)
