Psalm 45

1  My heart is astir with gracious words; ♦︎
   as I make my song for the king,
      my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
2  You are the fairest of men; ♦︎
   full of grace are your lips,
      for God has blest you for ever.
3  Gird your sword upon your thigh, O mighty one; ♦︎
   gird on your majesty and glory.
4  Ride on and prosper in the cause of truth ♦︎
   and for the sake of humility and righteousness.
5  Your right hand will teach you terrible things; ♦︎
   your arrows will be sharp in the heart of the king’s enemies,
      so that peoples fall beneath you.
6  Your throne is God’s throne, for ever; ♦︎
   the sceptre of your kingdom is the sceptre of righteousness.
7  You love righteousness and hate iniquity; ♦︎
   therefore God, your God, has anointed you
      with the oil of gladness above your fellows.
8  All your garments are fragrant with myrrh, aloes and cassia; ♦︎
   from ivory palaces the music of strings makes you glad.
9  Kings’ daughters are among your honourable women; ♦︎
   at your right hand stands the queen in gold of Ophir.
10  Hear, O daughter; consider and incline your ear; ♦︎
   forget your own people and your father’s house.
11  So shall the king have pleasure in your beauty; ♦︎
   he is your lord, so do him honour.
12  The people of Tyre shall bring you gifts; ♦︎
   the richest of the people shall seek your favour.
13  The king’s daughter is all glorious within; ♦︎
   her clothing is embroidered cloth of gold.
14  She shall be brought to the king in raiment of needlework; ♦︎
   after her the virgins that are her companions.
15  With joy and gladness shall they be brought ♦︎
   and enter into the palace of the king.
16  ‘Instead of your fathers you shall have sons, ♦︎
   whom you shall make princes over all the land.
17  ‘I will make your name to be remembered through all generations; ♦︎
   therefore shall the peoples praise you for ever and ever.’
