1 Why rage the heathen? and vain things

Why do the people mind?

The kings of earth do set themselves,

and princes are combined,

 

2 To plot against the Lord, and his

Anointed, saying thus,

Let us asunder break their bands,

And cast their cords from us.

 

3 But he that sits in heav'n shall laugh;

The Lord shall scorn them all;

Then shall he speak to them in wrath,

In rage he vex them shall.

 

4 Yet I my King anointed have

Upon my holy hill;

And reign as King on Zion mount

For evermore he will.

 

5 The sure decree I will declare;

The Lord hath said to me,

Thou art my only Son; this day

I have begotten thee.

 

6 Ask me, and for thy heritage

The heathen I'll make thine;

And, for possession, I to thee

Will give earth's utmost line.

 

7 Thou shalt as with a weighty rod

Of iron break them all;

And them, as potter's vessel, thou

Shalt dash in pieces small.

 

8 Now, therefore, kings, be wise; be taught,

Ye judges of the earth;

In holy fear Jehovah serve,

and tremble in your mirth.

 

9 And kiss the Son, lest in his ire

Ye perish from the way,

If once his wrath begin to burn.

Blest all that on him stay.
