1 My heart is astir with gracious words; ♦︎
as I make my song for the king,
my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
2 You are the fairest of men; ♦︎
full of grace are your lips,
for God has blest you for ever.
6 Your throne is Gods throne, for ever; ♦︎
the sceptre of your kingdom is the sceptre of righteousness.
7 You love righteousness and hate iniquity; ♦︎
therefore God, your God, has anointed you
with the oil of gladness above your fellows.
8 All your garments are fragrant with myrrh, aloes and cassia; ♦︎
from ivory palaces the music of strings makes you glad.
9 Kings daughters are among your honourable women; ♦︎
at your right hand stands the queen in gold of Ophir.
