Hymnal: The Psalms of David #79 (1740) Topics: Christ the King and the Church his Spouse First Line: My Saviour and my King Lyrics: 1 My Saviour and my King,
Thy Beauties are divine;
Thy Lips with Blessings overflow,
And ev'ry Grace is thine.
2 Now make thy Glory known,
Gird on thy dreadful Sword,
And ride in Majesty to spread
The Conquests of thy Word.
3 Strike through thy stubborn Foes,
Or melt their Hearts t'obey,
While Justice, Meekness, Grace, and Truth,
Attend thy glorious Way.
4 Thy Laws, O GOD, are right;
Thy Throne shall ever stand;
And thy victorious Gospel proves
A Sceptre in thy Hand.
5 [Thy Father and thy GOD
Hath without Measure shed
His Spirit, like a joyful Oil,
T'anoint thy sacred Head.]
6 [Behold, at thy Right-hand
The Gentile Church is seen,
Like a fair Bride in rich Attire,
And Princes guard the Queen.]
7 Fair Bride, receive his Love,
Forget thy Father's House;
Forsake thy Gods, thy Idol-Gods,
And pay thy Lord thy Vows.
8 O let thy GOD and King
Thy sweetest Thoughts employ;
Thy Children shall his Honours sing
In Palaces of Joy. Scripture: Psalm 45 Languages: English
The Glory of Christ, The Success of the Gospel, and the Gentile Church
