David and his afflictions all Lord do

David, and his afflictions all,
Lord, do thou think upon;
How unto God he sware, and vowíd
to Jacobís mighty One.

I will not come within my house,
nor rest in bed at all;
Nor shall mine eyes take any sleep,
nor eyelids slumber shall;

Till for the Lord a place I find,
where he may make abode;
A place of habitation
for Jacobís mighty God.

Lo, at the place of Ephratah
of it we understood;
And we did find it in the fields,
and city of the wood.

Weíll go into his tabernacles,
and at his footstool bow.
Arise, O Lord, into thy rest,
thí ark of thy strength, and thou.

O let thy priests be clothed, Lord,
with truth and righteousness;
And let all those that are thy saints
shout loud for joyfulness.

For thine own servant Davidís sake,
do not deny thy grace;
Nor of thine own anointed one
turn thou away the face.

The Lord in truth to David sware,
he will not turn from it,
I of thy bodyís fruit will make
upon thy throne to sit.

My covínant if thy sons will keep,
and laws to them made known,
Their children then shall also sit
for ever on thy throne.

For God of Sion hath made choice;
there he desires to dwell.
This is my rest, here still Iíll stay;
for I do like it well.

Her food Iíll greatly bless; her poor
with bread will satisfy.
Her priests Iíll clothe with health; her saints
shall shout forth joyfully.

And there will I make Davidís horn
to bud forth pleasantly:
For him that mine anointed is
a lamp ordainíd have I.

As with a garment I will clothe
with shame his enímies all:
But yet the crown that he doth wear
upon him flourish shall.
