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 Â¶ 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 Â¶ 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.
