A Song of Ascents.

Anniversary Hymn. The Ark of the Lord.  Psalm 132(v131)

1Remember, O LORD, in David's favor,
all the hardships he endured;
2how he swore to the LORD
and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob,
3"I will not enter my house
or get into my bed;
4I will not give sleep to my eyes
or slumber to my eyelids,
5until I find a place for the LORD,
a dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob."

6Lo, we heard of it in Eph'rathah,
we found it in the fields of Ja'ar.
7"Let us go to his dwelling place;
let us worship at his footstool!"

8Arise, O LORD, and go to thy resting place,
thou and the ark of thy might.
9Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness,
and let thy saints shout for joy.
10For thy servant David's sake do not turn away
the face of thy anointed one.

11The LORD swore to David a sure oath from which he will not turn back:
"One of the sons of your body I will set on your throne.
12If your sons keep my covenant and my testimonies which I shall teach them,
their sons also for ever shall sit upon your throne."

13For the LORD has chosen Zion;
he has desired it for his habitation:
14"This is my resting place for ever;
here I will dwell, for I have desired it.
15I will abundantly bless her provisions;
I will satisfy her poor with bread.
16Her priests I will clothe with salvation,
and her saints will shout for joy.
17There I will make a horn to sprout for David;
I have prepared a lamp for my anointed.
18His enemies I will clothe with shame,
but upon himself his crown will shed its luster."
