For the choir director: A psalm of David. How the king rejoices in your strength, O LORD! He shouts with joy because of your victory.
For you have given him his heart's desire; you have held back nothing that he requested. Interlude
You welcomed him back with success and prosperity. You placed a crown of finest gold on his head.
He asked you to preserve his life, and you have granted his request. The days of his life stretch on forever.
Your victory brings him great honor, and you have clothed him with splendor and majesty.
You have endowed him with eternal blessings. You have given him the joy of being in your presence.
