For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 aThe king rejoices in your strength, LORD. How great is his joy in the victories you give!
2 You have granted him his heart’s desire and have not withheld the request of his lips.b
3 You came to greet him with rich blessings and placed a crown of pure gold on his head.
4 He asked you for life, and you gave it to him— length of days, for ever and ever.
5 Through the victories you gave, his glory is great; you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.
6 Surely you have granted him unending blessings and made him glad with the joy of your presence.
