1 The king shall rejoice in your strength, O Lord; ♦︎
how greatly shall he rejoice in your salvation!
2 You have given him his hearts desire ♦︎
and have not denied the request of his lips.
3 For you come to meet him with blessings of goodness ♦︎
and set a crown of pure gold upon his head.
4 He asked of you life and you gave it him, ♦︎
length of days, for ever and ever.
5 His honour is great because of your salvation; ♦︎
glory and majesty have you laid upon him.
6 You have granted him everlasting felicity ♦︎
and will make him glad with joy in your presence.
7 For the king puts his trust in the Lord; ♦︎
because of the loving-kindness of the Most High,
he shall not be overthrown.
13 Be exalted, O Lord, in your own might; ♦︎
we will make music and sing of your power.
