My servant David I appoint to rule my




My servant David I appoint
to rule my people well,
And with my holy oil anoint
him king of Israel.


For why? my hand is ready still
with him for to remain,
And with my arm also I will
him strengthen and sustain:


The enemies shall not oppress,
they shall not him devour,
Nor shall the sons of wickedness
on him have any pow'r:


His foes likewise I will destroy
before his face in sight,
Those that him hate I will annoy,
and strike them with my might:


My truth and mercy shall likewise
upon him ever lie;
And in my Name his horn shall rise,
and be exalted high:


His kingdom I will set to be :
upon the sea and land;
Also the running flood shall he
embrace with his right hand:


He shall depend with all his heart
on me and thus shall say,
My Father and my God thou art,
my rock, my health, and stay:


As my first born I will him count
of all on earth that springs;
His might and honor shall surmount
above all earthly kings:


My mercy shall be with him still,
as I myself have told,
My faithful cov'nant to fulfil,
my promise I will hold:


Also his seed I will sustain
for ever strong and sure;
So that his seed shall still reanaiu,
while heav'n and earth endure.
