Bay Psalm Book: Psalm 20

To the chief Musician, a psalm of David.

1 JEHOVAH hear thee in the day

of sore calamity,

the name of the God of Jacob

defend thee mightily.

2 Send thee help from his holy place:

from Sion strengthen thee.

3 Mind all thy gifts, thy sacrifice

accepted let it be. Selah.

4 Grant thee according to thy heart,

all thy counsel fulfill.

5 In thy perfect salvation

with singing joy we will:

And we in the name of our God

our banners will erect:

when as all thy petitions

Jehovah shall effect.

6 Now I know, that Jehovah doth

save his anointed-Dear:

with saving strength of his right hand

from his pure heav’n will hear.

7 In chariots some their confidence,

and some in horses set:

but we the name of Jehovah

our God will not forget.

8 They are brought down and fall’n: but we,

rise and stand stedfastly.

9 Save Lord, and let the King us hear

when as to him we cry.
