Remember David's troubles Lord how unto




Remember David's troubles, Lord,
how unto thee he swore,
And vowed a vow to Jacob's God,
to keep for evermore;


I will not come within my house,
nor climb up to my bed,
Nor let my temples take their rest,
nor eyes within my head;


Till I have found out for the Lord
a place to sit thereon,
An house for Jacob's God to be
an habitation.


We heard of it at Ephrata,
where did we hear this sound,
and in the fields and forests there
these voices first were found:


We will assay and go unto
his tabernacle there,
Before his footstool to fall down,
and worship him in fear.


Arise, O Lord, arise, I pray,
into thy resting place,
Thou and the ark of thy great strength,
the presence of thy grace.


Let all thy priests be cloth-ed, Lord,
with truth and righteousness,
Let all thy saints with songs of praise
their joyfullness express.


And for thy servant David's sake
refuse not, Lord, I pray,
The face of thy Annointed, and
turn not from him away.
