Psalter 45

Verse 1
Now the King in Thy strength shall be joyful, O Lord,
They salvation shall make Him rejoice;
For the wish of His heart Thou didst freely accord,
The request or His suppliant voice.

Verse 2
All the blessings of goodness Thou freely didst give;
With the purest of gold He is crowned;
When He asked of Thee life Thou hast made Him to live
While the ages shall circle around.

Verse 3
Thro' salvation from Thee has His fame spread abroad,
Thou didst glory and honor impart;
Thou hast made Him most blessed forever, O God,
And They presence has gladdened His heart.

Verse 4
For the King in the strength of Jehovah Most High
Did unwavering confidence place;
On the Name of Jehovah He still will rely,
And shall stand evermore in His grace.

Verse 5
By the hand of Thy might and Thy anger destroyed,
All Thy foes and their offspring shall fail;
By the evil they planned and the craft they employed
They shall never against Thee prevail.

Verse 6
Thou wilt speedily make them turn backward in flight,
When Thy arrows are aimed to destroy.
O Jehovah, be Thou far exalted in might,
And Thy pow'r shall our praises employ.
