RALPH HARRISON, 1748-1810 Sacred Harmony, 1784
1 DAVID, and all his anxious care,
Do thou, O Lord, remember now;
How he unto the Lord did swear,
To Jacob's Mighty One did vow:
2 Into my house I will not go,
Nor will I on my bed repose;
Sleep to mine eyes I will not know,
Slumber shall not mine eyelids close;
3 Till I a place find for the Lord,
A house for Jacob's Strong One build.
Of it at Ephratah we heard,
We found it in the forest-field.
4 We'll go into his courts, and bow
Before the footstool of his grace.
Arise, thine ark of strength, and thou,
O Lord, into thy resting-place.
5 O clothe thy priests with righteousness,
And let thy saints glad shoutings make;
Avert not thine anointed's face,
For thine own servant David's sake.
6 The Lord hath unto David sworn
In truth, he will not turn from it,
I of the sons unto thee born
Will make upon thy throne to sit.
7 If they my covenant will obey,
And testimonies I make known,
Their children I will bless, and they
Shall sit for ever on thy throne.
8 The Lord hath chosen Zion hill;
For there he hath desired to dwell.
This is my rest, and here I will
Abide; for I do like it well.
9 I'll her provision richly bless;
With bread her poor I'll satisfy:
Her priests I'll clothe with righteousness;
Her saints shall shout aloud for joy.
10 To bud I'll there make David's horn,
And for my king a lamp I'll trim;
His enemies I'll clothe with scorn,
But flourish shall his crown on him.
1 ¬∂ A Song of degrees. LORD, remember David, and all his afflictions:
2 How he sware unto the LORD, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob;
3 Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;
4 I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,
5 Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.
6 Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood.
7 We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.
8 Arise, O LORD, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength.
9 Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.
10 For thy servant David's sake turn not away the face of thine anointed.
11 ¬∂ The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.
12 If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore.
13 For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation.
14 This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.
15 I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.
16 I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.
17 There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.
18 His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
