The King Rejoices in the Lord's Strength

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

21 O Lord, in your (A)strength the king rejoices,
    and in your (B)salvation how greatly he exults!
You have (C)given him his heart's desire
    and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah
For you (D)meet him with rich blessings;
    you set (E)a crown of (F)fine gold upon his head.
He asked life of you; you (G)gave it to him,
    (H)length of days forever and ever.
His (I)glory is great through your salvation;
    (J)splendor and majesty you bestow on him.
For you make him most blessed forever;[a]
    you make him glad with the (K)joy of your presence.
For the king trusts in the Lord,
    and through the steadfast love of the Most High he shall not be (L)moved.
