Minister: Lift up your hearts!
Congregation: We lift them up to the Lord!
The Lord said to my own Lord,
Sit here, at my right hand.
And as You sit, and as You reign,
I will make a footrest from Your foes.
The Lord shall send the rod of strength,
From out of Zion comes His decree,
And You will rule in the midst of Your foes.
In the day of Your power, Your people will come,
They will be willing in the day of Your strength.
In the beauty of holiness, they all will arise,
In the womb of the morning, they all will appear,
And You will have strength in the dew of that youth.
The Lord has taken a solemn oath,
And He will never take back that word.
You are a priest, forever and ever,
You are a priest of Melchizedek’s order.
The Lord at Your right hand will strike,
And kings will fall in the day of His wrath.
He will judge the nations,
He will fill many places with heathen carcasses.
He will wound the heads
Of all the nations.
He will stoop and drink from the brook in the way,
Like Gideon’s men,
He will lift up the head.
And so, gracious Father, we worship You now through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end, amen.
