Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
David rejoiced in God his strength,|
Raised to the throne by special grace;
But Christ the Son appears at length,
Fulfils the triumph and the praise.
2. How great is the Messiah's joy
3. Thy goodness grants whate'er he will,|
Nor doth the least request withhold;
Blessings of love prevent him still,
And crowns of glory, not of gold.
4. Honor and majesty divine
5. Thine hand shall find out all his foes;|
And as a fiery oven glows
With raging heat and living coals,
So shall thy wrath devour their souls.
