Psalm 72 - Doxology for Advent and Epiphany


This Sunday, January 6, churches observe the Epiphany of the Lord and begin the season of Epiphany, marking the next step in the Church Calendar following Advent and Christmas while preparing the way for Lent and the road to Easter.  Psalm 72 is frequently used at Advent and Epiphany to celebrate the Messianic fulfillment found in both the coming of Christ and his earthly ministry.

At Grace Church we sang Psalm 72:18-19 as our Doxology during Advent and Christmas, and we will continue to sing it through Epiphany to celebrate the glorious deeds of God in Christ.
