Psalm 21. Domine, in virtute tua.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Fourth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. The king rejoices in your strength, O Lord; *
    how greatly he exults in your victory!
  2. You have given him his heart's desire; *
    you have not denied him the request of his lips.
  3. For you meet him with blessings of prosperity, *
    and set a crown of fine gold upon his head.
  4. He asked you for life, and you gave it to him: *
    length of days, for ever and ever.
  5. His honor is great, because of your victory; *
    splendor and majesty have you bestowed upon him.
  6. For you will give him everlasting felicity *
    and will make him glad with the joy of your presence.
  7. For the king puts his trust in the Lord; *
    because of the loving-kindness of the Most High, he will not fall.
  8. Your hand will lay hold upon all your enemies; *
    your right hand will seize all those who hate you.
  9. You will make them like a fiery furnace *
    at the time of your appearing, O Lord;
  10. You will swallow them up in your wrath, *
    and fire shall consume them.
  11. You will destroy their offspring from the land *
    and their descendants from among the peoples of the earth.
  12. Though they intend evil against you and devise wicked schemes, *
    yet they shall not prevail.
  13. For you will put them to flight *
    and aim your arrows at them.
  14. Be exalted, O Lord, in your might; *
    we will sing and praise your power.
