Hymn/Song Information

My heart doth take in hand some godly




My heart doth take in hand
some godly song to sing;
The praise that I shall show therein
pertaineth to the King.


My tongue shall be as quick,
His honor to indict,
As is the pen of any scribe
that useth fast to write.


O fairest of all men,
thy lips with grace are pure;
For God hath bless-ed thee with gifts
for ever to endure.


About thee gird thy sword,
O Prince of might elect;
With honor, glory, and renown,
thou art most richly decked.


Go forth with godly speed,
with meekness, truth, and right;
And thy right hand shall thee instruct
in works of dreadful might.


Thy arrows sharp and keen
their heart so sore shall sting,
That they shall crouch and kneel to thee,
yea, all thy foes, O King.


Thy royal Seat, O Lord,
for ever shall remain;
Because the scepter of thy realm
doth righteousness maintain,


Because thou lov'dst the right,
and didst the ill detest,
Therefore hath God anointed thee
with joy above the rest.


With myrrh and savors sweet
thy clothes are all bespread,
When thou dost from thy palace pass,
thereby to make thee glad.


Kings' daughters do attend
in fine and rich array;
At thy right hand the Queen doth stand
in gold and garments gay.
