Psalm 132. Memento, Domine.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Twenty-eighth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. LORD, remember David, *
    and all his trouble:
  2. How he sware unto the Lord, *
    and vowed a vow unto the Almighty God of Jacob:
  3. I will not come within the tabernacle of mine house, *
    nor climb up into my bed;
  4. I will not suffer mine eyes to sleep, nor mine eyelids to slumber; *
    neither the temples of my head to take any rest;
  5. Until I find out a place for the temple of the Lord; *
    an habitation for the Mighty God of Jacob.
  6. Lo, we heard of the same at Ephratah, *
    and found it in the wood.
  7. We will go into his tabernacle, *
    and fall low on our knees before his footstool.
  8. Arise, O Lord, into thy resting-place; *
    thou, and the ark of thy strength.
  9. Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; *
    and let thy saints sing with joyfulness.
  10. For thy servant David's sake, *
    turn not away the face of thine anointed.
  11. The Lord hath made a faithful oath unto David, *
    and he shall not shrink from it:
  12. Of the fruit of thy body *
    shall I set upon thy throne.
  13. If thy children will keep my covenant, and my testimonies that I shall teach them; *
    their children also shall sit upon thy throne for evermore.
  14. For the Lord hath chosen Sion to be an habitation for himself; *
    he hath longed for her.
  15. This shall be my rest for ever: *
    here will I dwell, for I have a delight therein.
  16. I will bless her victuals with increase, *
    and will satisfy her poor with bread.
  17. I will deck her priests with health, *
    and her saints shall rejoice and sing.
  18. There shall I make the horn of David to flourish: *
    I have ordained a lantern for mine anointed.
  19. As for his enemies, I shall clothe them with shame; *
    but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
