1 O wherefore do the nations rage,
And kings and rulers strive in vain,
Against the Lord of earth and heaven
To overthrow Messiah's reign?
2 Their strength is weakness in the sight
Of him who sits enthroned above;
He speaks, and judgments fall on them
Who tempt His wrath and scorn His love.
3 By God's decree His Son receives
The nations for His heritage;
The conquering Christ supreme shall reign
As King of kings, from age to age.
4 Be wise, ye rulers of the earth,
And serve the Lord with godly fear;
With reverent joy confess the Son
While yet in mercy He is near.
5 Delay not, lest His anger rise,
And ye should perish in your way;
Lo, all that put their trust in Him
Are blest indeed, and blest for aye.
The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
