Why do the nations rage,
'Let us break their bands asunder, And cast away their cords from us.'
He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh:
Yet I have set My KING
JEHOVAH'S KING I will tell of the decree:
The LORD said unto me, “Thou art my son;
“This day have I begotten thee. “Ask of me, and I will give the nations for thine inheritance,
“And the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. “Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron;
“Thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.”
Now therefore be wise, O ye kings:
Be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
Kiss the son, lest he be angry,
And ye perish in the way,
Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
King and Priest
The LORD shall stretch forth the rod of thy strength out of Zion:
thy youth are to thee as the dew.
The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent,
The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of

A Dynasty of Righteousness Thine house and thy kingdom shall be made sure for ever before thee:
thy throne shall be established for ever.
And thy righteousness unto the king's son.
The mountains shall bring peace to the people,
And the hills, in righteousness. He shall judge the poor of the people, He shall save the children of the needy,
And shall break in pieces the oppressor. They shall fear thee while the sun endureth,
And so long as the moon, throughout all generations.
As showers that water the earth.
And abundance of peace, till the moon be no more.
And from the River unto the ends of the earth. They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him;
And his enemies shall lick the dust.
The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents:
The kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
All nations shall serve him.
And the poor, that hath no helper.
And the souls of the needy he shall save.
And precious shall their blood be in his sight:
And men shall pray for him continually;
They shall bless him all the day long.
And they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.
His name shall be continued as long as the sun: And men shall be blessed in him;
All nations shall call him happy.
Zion Mother of Nations
His foundation in the holy mountains the LORD loveth;

A Processional Hymn
Let them also that hate him flee before him.
So drive them away:
So let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
Yea, let them rejoice with gladness.
Sing unto God, sing praises to his name:
His name is JAH;
And exult ye before him. A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.
God setteth the solitary in families:
He bringeth out the prisoners into prosperity:
But the rebellious dwell in a parched land.
Thy congregation dwelt therein:
The Lord giveth the word:

which God hath desired for his abode? Yea, the LORD will dwell in it for ever. 'The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands upon

thou hast received gifts among men’Yea, among the rebellious also, that the LORD God might
dwell with them.
Blessed be the Lord, who daily beareth our burden,
