Psalm 132 - 1st Version
COLCHESTER | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
Melody from Tans'ur's Harmony of Zion, 1734 (later form of rhythm)
1 DAVID, and his afflictions all,
O Lord, remember thou;
2 How he unto the Lord did swear,
To Jacob's Strong One vow.
3 I will not come into my house,
Nor on my bed repose;
4 No slumber on mine eyes shall fall,
Nor sleep mine eyelids close;
5 Till for the Lord a place I find,
Where he may make abode,
A place of habitation meet
For Jacob's mighty God.
6 That in the land of Ephratah
It lay we understood;
We found it in the forest-fields,
The city of the wood.
7 We'll to his tabernacles go,
And at his footstool bow.
8 Arise, O Lord, into thy rest,
The ark of thy strength, and thou.
9 O let thy priests be clothed, Lord,
With truth and righteousness;
And let all those that are thy saints
Shout loud for joyfulness.
10 For thine own servant David's sake,
Do not deny thy grace;
Nor of thine own anointed one
Turn thou away the face.
11 The Lord in truth to David sware,
He will not turn from it,
I of thy body's fruit will make
Upon thy throne to sit.
12 My covenant if thy sons will keep,
And laws to them made known,
Their children then shall also sit
For ever on thy throne.
13 For God of Zion hath made choice;
There he desires to dwell.
14 This is my rest, here still I'll stay;
For I do like it well.
15 Her food I'll greatly bless; her poor
With bread will satisfy.
16 Her priests I'll with salvation clothe,
Her saints shall shout for joy.
17 And there will I make David's horn
To bud forth pleasantly:
For him that mine anointed is
A lamp ordained have I.
18 As with a garment I will clothe
With shame his enemies all:
But yet the crown that he doth wear
Upon him flourish shall.
