Psalm 21

The king shall rejoice in your strength, O Lord :
 he shall exult in your salvation.
You have given him his heart’s desire :
 you have not denied him the request of his lips.
For you came to meet him with the blessings of success :
 and placed a crown of gold upon his head.
He asked you for life and you gave it him :
 length of days for ever and ever.
Great is his glory because of your salvation :
 you have clothed him with honour and majesty.
You have given him everlasting felicity :
 and made him glad with the joy of your presence.
For the king puts his trust in the Lord :
 and through the tender mercy of the Most High
   he shall never be moved.
Your hand shall light upon your enemies :
 and your right hand shall find out all who hate you.
You will make them like a blazing furnace
   in the day of your coming :
 the Lord will overwhelm them in his wrath,
   and fire shall consume them.
You will root out their offspring from the earth :
 and their seed from among the children of men;
Because they have stirred up evil against you :
 and plotted mischief, which they cannot perform.
Therefore will you set your shoulder toward them :
 and draw the string of the bow to strike at their faces.
Arise, O Lord, in your great strength :
 and we will sing and praise your power.
