2 (2)Psalm 2 Version 2LM
O WHEREFORE do the nations rage,
   And kings and rulers strive in vain,
Against the Lord of earth and Heaven,
    To overthrow Messiah’s reign?
2  Their strength is weakness in the sight
    Of Him Who sits enthroned above;
He speaks, and judgements fall on them
    Who tempt His wrath and scorn His love.
3  By God’s decree His Son receives
    The nations for His heritage;
The conquering Christ shall surely reign
    As King of kings, from age to age.
4  Be wise, you rulers of the earth,
    And serve the Lord with godly fear;
With reverent joy confess the Son
    While yet in mercy He is near.
5  Delay not, lest His anger rise,
    And you should perish in your way;
Lo, all that put their trust in Him
    Are blest for all eternity.
The Psalter, 1912
