Psalm 45

My heart is astir with fine phrases, I make my song for a king :
 my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are the fairest of the sons of men, grace flows from your lips :
 therefore has God blessed you for ever and ever.
Gird your sword upon your thigh, O mighty warrior :
 in glory and majesty tread down your foes, and triumph!
Ride on in the cause of truth :
 and for the sake of justice.
Your right hand shall teach a terrible instruction :
 peoples shall fall beneath you,
   your arrows shall be sharp in the hearts of the king’s enemies.
Your throne is the throne of God, it endures for ever :
 and the sceptre of your kingdom is a righteous sceptre.
You have loved righteousness and hated evil :
 therefore God, your God, has anointed you
   with the oil of gladness above your fellows.
All your garments are fragrant with myrrh, aloes and cassia :
 music from ivory palaces makes you glad.
Kings’ daughters are among your noble women :
 the queen is at your right hand in gold of Ophir.
Hear, O daughter, consider and incline your ear :
 forget your own people and your father’s house.
The king desires your beauty :
 he is your lord, therefore bow down before him.
The richest among the people, O daughter of Tyre :
 shall entreat your favour with gifts.
The king’s daughter is all glorious within :
 her clothing is embroidered cloth-of-gold.
In robes of many colours she is led to you, O king :
 and, after her, the virgins that are with her.
They are led with gladness and rejoicing :
 they enter the palace of the king.
In place of your fathers you shall have sons :
 and make them princes over all the land.
And I will make known your name to every generation :
 therefore the peoples shall give you praise for ever.
