View Lyrics
David rejoiced in God, his strength,
raise to the throne by special grace;
but Christ the Son appears at length:
His is the triumph and the praise.

How great is the Messiah's joy
in the salvation of Your hand!
Lord, You have raised His kingdom high,
and giv'n the world to His command.

Your goodness grants His every will,
nor does His least request withhold;
blessings of love surround Him still,
and crowns of glory, more than gold.

Honor and majesty divine
around His sacred temples shine;
blest with the favor of Your face,
and length of everlasting days.
