1 David rejoic'd in God his Strength,
Rais'd to the throne by special Grace,
But Christ the Son appears at length,
Fulfils the Triumph and the Praise.
2 How great is the Messiah's Joy
In the Salvation of thy Hand!
Lord, thou hast rais'd his Kingdom high,
And giv'n the World to his Command.
3 Thy Goodness grants whate'er he will,
Nor doth the least Request with-hold;
Blessings of Love prevent him still,
And Crowns of Glory, not of Gold.
4 Honour and Majesty divine
Around his sacred Temple shine;
Blest with the Favour of thy Face,
And Length of everlasting Days.
5 Thine Hand shall find out all his Foes;
And as a fiery Oven glows
With raging Heat and living Coals,
So shall thy Wrath devour their Souls.
