In Your strength, O Lord, the king is filled with joy
And in Your salvation You have made him glad.
You, Lord, have granted all his heart desired
And have not withheld anything that he requested.
You have crowned his head with abundance of good things
He asked You for life, You extended it forever.
Because of Your salvation, his majesty is great
Honor and glory make him most blessed forever.
Gladness overwhelms him because of Your presence
He trusts in You, Lord, Your love makes Him secure.
But those who hate You will feel Your hand of judgment
You’ll swallow them up and Your fire will destroy them.
They plotted against You –their schemes will not succeed
Their offspring have no future among the sons of men.
When they see Your arrows they run for their lives
But we will exalt You and celebrate Your pow’r!
