The Lord said to my Lord, ‘sit here’

The Lord said to my Lord, ‘sit here
at my right hand,
until your foes before you fall
at my command!’
From Zion’s throne he gave you power
to rule the land.

2. And when the day of battle comes,
your troops will fight,
and you, in holy majesty,
from day’s first light,
with youth anointed, as with dew,
will rise in might!

3. The Lord himself has sworn, and none
his oath can shake:
that you for ever in his name
should priesthood take,
succeeding in the line of peace
Melchizedek!

4. O Christ, beside your Father now
you take your seat,
till all the powers of earth lie crushed
beneath your feet,
renown and glory crown your head,
your work complete.
