               PSALM 45: 1-2, 6-9
1 My heart is stirring with a noble song; let me
recite what I have fashioned for the king; my
tongue shall be the pen of a skilled writer.

2 You are the fairest of men; grace flows from
your lips, because God has blessed you forever.

6 The peoples are falling at your feet, and the
king’s enemies are losing heart.

7 Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever,
a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of your
kingdom; you love righteousness and hate

8 Therefore God, your God, has anointed you with
the oil of gladness above your fellows.

9 All your garments are fragrant with myrrh,
aloes, and cassia, and the music of strings from
ivory palaces makes you glad.
