A Song for the King's Marriage

451 My heart overflows with a good theme ; I address my verses to the King ; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer . 2 You are fairer than the sons of men ; Grace is poured upon Your lips ; Therefore e God has blessed You forever . 3 Gird Your sword on Your thigh , O Mighty One , In Your splendor and Your majesty ! 4 And in Your majesty ride on victoriously , For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness ; Let Your right hand teach You awesome things . 5 Your arrows are sharp ; The peoples fall under You; Your arrows are in the heart of the King's enemies .

6 Your throne , O God , is forever and ever ; A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom . 7 You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness ; Therefore e God , Your God , has anointed You With the oil of joy above Your fellows . 8 All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia ; Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad . 9 Kings' daughters are among Your noble ladies; At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir .

10 Listen , O daughter , give attention and incline your ear : Forget your people and your father's house ; 11 Then the King will desire your beauty . Because He is your Lord , bow down to Him. 12 The daughter of Tyre will come with a gift ; The rich among the people will seek your favor . 13 The King's daughter is all glorious within ; Her clothing is interwoven with gold . 14 She will be led to the King in embroidered work ; The virgins , her companions who follow her, Will be brought to You. 15 They will be led forth with gladness and rejoicing ; They will enter into the King's palace . 16 In place of your fathers will be your sons ; You shall make them princes in all the earth . 17 I will cause Your name to be remembered in all generations ; Therefore e the peoples will give You thanks forever and ever .
