There is a place for Justice
Once mercy has run its full course

There is a place, a territory reserved
For the True Heir to call for God
To perform Righteous acts

Should it be a foreign thing
For us to Reign in Righteousness
Called upon by the Father
To rule and govern the land?

We hold no political office
Have no degree in political science
Have not been educated in laws
Have no formal title
No claim to entitlement
But simply and fully
Taking position in God's Might
Through His Wisdom
With the Heart of the King
Calling forth decrees of Justice

The writing of Judgments
May be finished
The signature of God upon each one
But daily, hourly, minute by minute
The calling forth of God's Justice
Over the land and the people
Is the work of a True Heir

Should you fear this Justice?
Should you take account
Of your sins against God,
Against others, against Truth?
Should you make right
What you have done wrong?
Should you repent?

Justice, pure Justice comes!
"It is Time!" The Father declares

In You, Lord, I have taken refuge;
let me never be put to shame.

In Your Righteousness, rescue me and deliver me;
turn Your ear to me and save me.

Be my rock of refuge,
to which I can always go;
give the command to save me,
for You are my rock and my fortress.

Deliver me, my God, from the hand of the wicked,
from the grasp of those who are evil and cruel.

For You have been my hope, Sovereign Lord,
my confidence since my youth.

From birth I have relied on You;
You brought me forth from my mother’s womb.
I will ever praise You.

I have become a sign to many;
You are my strong refuge.

My mouth is filled with Your praise,
declaring Your splendor all day long.

Do not cast me away when I am old;
do not forsake me when my strength is gone.

For my enemies speak against me;
those who wait to kill me conspire together.

They say, “God has forsaken him;
pursue him and seize him,
for no one will rescue him.”

Do not be far from me, my God;
come quickly, God, to help me.

May my accusers perish in shame;
may those who want to harm me
be covered with scorn and disgrace.

As for me, I will always have hope;
I will praise You more and more.

My mouth will tell of Your Righteous deeds,
of Your saving acts all day long—
though I know not how to relate them all.

I will come and proclaim Your mighty acts, Sovereign Lord;
I will proclaim Your righteous deeds, Yours alone.

Since my youth, God, You have taught me,
and to this day I declare Your marvelous deeds.

Even when I am old and gray,
do not forsake me, my God,
till I declare Your Power to the next generation,
Your mighty acts to all who are to come.

Your Righteousness, God, reaches to the heavens,
You who have done great things.
Who is like you, God?

Though You have made me see troubles,
many and bitter,
You will restore my life again;
from the depths of the earth
You will again bring me up.

You will increase my honor
and comfort me once more.

I will praise You with the harp
for Your Faithfulness, my God;
I will sing praise to You with the lyre,
Holy One of Israel.

My lips will shout for joy
when I sing praise to You—
I whom You have delivered.

My tongue will tell of Your Righteous acts
all day long,
for those who wanted to harm me
have been put to shame and confusion.
Psalm 71
