1 The Lord did say unto my Lord,
Sit thou on my right hand,
Till I have made thy foes a stool
whereon thy feet shall stand.
2 The Lord shall out of Zion send
the scepter of thy might:
Amidst thy mortal foes be thou
the ruler in their sight.
3 And in the day on which thy reign
and power they shall see,
Then free-will offerings shall all
the people give to thee.
4 Yea, with an holy worshipping
then shall they offer all:
Thy birth-dew is the dew that doth
from womb of morning fall.
5 The Lord hath sworn, and never will
repent what he doth say,
By th'order of Melchisedech
thou art a priest alway.
6 The Lord thy God on thy right hand
that standeth for thy stay,
Shall wound for thee the stately kings
in that his wrathful day.
7 The heathen he shall judge, and fill
the place with bodies dead,
And over divers countries shall
in sunder smite the head.
8 And he shall drink out of the brook
that runneth in the way:
Wherefore he shall lift up on high
his royal head that day.
