You are a priest for ever

Psalm 109

  • Ostinato refrain:
    You are a priest for ever,
    a priest like Melchikadek of old .
  1. The Lord's revelation to my master,
    "Sit on my right.
    I will put your foes beneath your feet."
  2. The Lord will send from Zion
    your sceptre of power.
    Rule in the midst of all your foes.
  3. A prince from the day of your birth
    on the holy mountain.
    The Lord has sworn an oath he will not change.
