Feast of Justin, Martyr at Rome, c.165Meditation
Commemoration of Angela de’Merici, Founder of the Institute of St. Ursula, 1540
May his name endure forever; may it continue as long as the sun.
All nations will be blessed through him, and they will call him blessed.
Praise be to the LORD God, the God of Israel, who alone does marvelous deeds.
Praise be to his glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with his glory. Amen and Amen.
-- Psalm 72:17-19 (NIV)
Jesus shall reign where’er the sun
Does its successive journeys run,
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.
For him shall endless prayer be made,
And princes throng to crown his head;
His name, like sweet perfume, shall rise
With every morning sacrifice.
People and realms of every tongue
Dwell on his love with sweetest song,
And infant-voices shall proclaim
Their early blessings on his name.
Blessings abound where’er he reigns;
The prisoners leap to lose their chains;
The weary find eternal rest,
And all the sons of want are blest.
Let every creature rise and bring
Honors peculiar to our King;
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeat the loud amen.
... Isaac Watts (1674-1748), Psalms of David Imitated
, Psalm 72
Quiet time reflection
Lord, Your praises shall be endless.
