The 72d Psalm is an eminent instance of Christ being the subject matter of praise; the person spoken of. To apply it exclusively to David or to Solomon would contradict the facts of history and be little short of impiety. An infinitely greater than David or Solomon is here. While the petition with which the Psalm begins can apply to them both, in a far higher sense it applies to him who is both David’s Son and Lord. In this song the Old Testament worshipper prayed for the establishment and perpetuity of the kingdom of the Messiah before he came into the world. We in singing it and other Messianic songs celebrate the greatness of the kingdom and the glory of the King.

For the reference, see Thomas Sproull on Christ and Psalm 72.
