A Victory Decree

For the Pure and Shining One

For the end times, by David[a]

May God Hear You

20 In your day of danger may Yahweh answer and deliver you.
    May the name of the God of Jacob[b] set you safely on high!
May supernatural help be sent from his sanctuary.
    May he support you from Zion’s fortress!
May he remember every gift you have given him
    and celebrate every sacrifice of love you have shown him.[c]
Pause in his presence
May Yahweh give you every desire of your heart
    and carry out your every plan as you go to battle.
When you succeed, we will celebrate and shout for joy.
    Flags will fly when victory is yours!
    Yes, God will answer your prayers, and we will praise him!
I know Yahweh gives me all that I ask for
    and brings victory to his anointed king.
    My deliverance cry will be heard in his holy heaven.
    By his mighty hand miracles will manifest
    through his saving strength.
Some find their strength in their weapons and wisdom,
    but my miracle-deliverance can never be won by men.
    Our boast is in Yahweh our God,
    who makes us strong and gives us victory!
Our enemies will not prevail; they will only collapse and
    perish in defeat while we will rise up, full of courage.
Give victory to our king, O Yahweh!
    The day we call on you, give us your answer!
