Thanksgiving for Victory

To the leader. A Psalm of David.

1In your strength the king rejoices, O Lord,

and in your help how greatly he exults!

2You have given him his heart’s desire,

and have not withheld the request of his lips.   Selah

3For you meet him with rich blessings;

you set a crown of fine gold on his head.

4He asked you for life; you gave it to him—

length of days forever and ever.

5His glory is great through your help;

splendor and majesty you bestow on him.

6You bestow on him blessings forever;

you make him glad with the joy of your presence.

7For the king trusts in the Lord,

and through the steadfast love of the Most High he shall not be moved.

8Your hand will find out all your enemies;

your right hand will find out those who hate you.

9You will make them like a fiery furnace

when you appear.

The Lord will swallow them up in his wrath,

and fire will consume them.

10You will destroy their offspring from the earth,

and their children from among humankind.

11If they plan evil against you,

if they devise mischief, they will not succeed.

12For you will put them to flight;

you will aim at their faces with your bows.

13Be exalted, O Lord, in your strength!

We will sing and praise your power.
