L ORD our God, remember David and the hardships which he bore. To the Mighty One of Jacob, to the L ORD, this oath he swore: “My house I will never enter; rest and slumber I will shun, till I find the L ORD a dwelling fit for Jacob’s Mighty One.” [Sing to the Lord 132]
2. We, in Ephrathah, have heard this, found it in the fields of Jaar: “Let us hasten to his dwelling, worship at his footstool there. Rise, O L ORD, and dwell among us, resting with your ark of might! May your priests be clothed with honour, may your saints sing with delight.”
3. For the sake of your own servant, David, your appointed one, do not turn away your favour from his own anointed son. G OD has sworn an oath to David; from it he will never turn: “I will choose from your descendants one to sit upon your throne.
4. “If your sons will keep my cov’nant and the statutes I make known, surely then shall their descendants sit forever on your throne.” For the L ORD has chosen Zion – there he wishes to remain: “Here’s my resting place forever, here it pleases me to reign.
