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.
