1 Now the King in Thy strength shall be joyful, O Lord,
Thy salvation shall make Him rejoice;
For the wish of His heart Thou didst freely accord,
The request of His suppliant voice.
2 All the blessings of goodness Thou freely didst give;
With the purest of gold he is crowned;
When He asked of Thee life Thou hast made Him to live
While the ages shall circle around.
3 Through salvation from Thee hath His fame spread abroad,
Thou didst glory and honor impart;
Thou hast made Him most blessed forever, O God,
And Thy presence hat gladdened His heart.
4 For the King in the strength of Jehovah Most High
Did unwavering confidence place;
On the Name of Jehovah He still will rely,
And shall stand evermore in His grace.
5 By the hand of Thy might and Thy anger destroyed,
All Thy foes and their offspring shall fall;
By the evil they planned and the craft they employed
They shall never against Thee prevail.
6 Thou wilt speedily make them turn backward in flight,
When Thy arrows are aimed to destroy.
O Jehovah, be Thou far exalted in might,
And Thy power shall our praises employ.
