For the choir director: A psalm of the descendants of Korah, to be sung to the tune "Lilies." A love song. My heart overflows with a beautiful thought! I will recite a lovely poem to the king, for my tongue is like the pen of a skillful poet.
You are the most handsome of all. Gracious words stream from your lips. God himself has blessed you forever.
Put on your sword, O mighty warrior! You are so glorious, so majestic!
In your majesty, ride out to victory, defending truth, humility, and justice. Go forth to perform awe-inspiring deeds!
Your arrows are sharp, piercing your enemies' hearts. The nations fall before you, lying down beneath your feet.
Your throne, O God, a endures forever and ever. Your royal power is expressed in justice.
