The king shall rejoice in your strength, O Lord :
he shall exult in your salvation.
You have given him his hearts 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.
