Feast of Justin, Martyr at Rome, c.165
Commemoration of Angela de Merici, Founder of the Institute of St. Ursula, 1540
Jesus shall reign where’er the sunDoes 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 riseWith ev’ry morning sacrifice. People and realms, of every tongue,Dwell on his love with sweetest song,And infant-voices shall proclaimTheir 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 bringPeculiar honours to our King:Angels descend with songs again,And earth repeat the loud Amen.
... Isaac Watts (1674-1748), Psalms of David Imitated , in Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs, ed. Samuel Melanchthon Worcester, Boston: Crocker & Brewster, 1834, Ps. 72, second part, p. 159-160
