|45 (3)||Psalm 45 Version 3||LM|
|NOW be my heart inspired to sing
The glories of my Saviour-King,
He comes with blessings from above,
To win the nations to His love.
The Church of Jesus Christ:
|2||At His right hand our eyes behold
A queen arrayed in purest gold;
All shall admire her heavenly dress,
Her robes of joy and righteousness.
|3||He forms her beauties like His own;
He calls and seats her near His throne,
And makes her raptured heart forget
The idols of her native state.
|4||So shall the King the more rejoice
In theethe favourite of His choice,
Let Him be loved and yet adored
As thy Redeemer, Friend and Lord.
|5||O happy hour when we shall rise
To His fair palace in the skies,
And all our sons in numerous train,
Each as a prince in glory reign.
|6||Let endless honours crown His head,
And every age His praises spread;
And our exulting praise approve
The condescension of His love.
|Isaac Watts, 1674-1748|
