Words: The Psalter for Christian Worship, Michael Morgan
A Royal Psalm
Why do nations rage together; Why in vain do they conspire? Rulers of earth's vast dominions Light the skies with martyrs' fire. Truth mistaken, God forsaken, Banes of righteousness arise; Yet shall they reap sore displeasure, Sure defeat before God's eyes.
To the children of the promise God shall give the throne this day; With a scepter forged of iron, They shall dash their foes as clay. Faith revealing, humbly kneeling, Quench the fire and sheathe the sword; For God's wrath is quickly kindled; Blest are they who serve the LORD.
