Singing Psalm 110

A lovely setting of Psalm 110.

Tune: Aurelia — “The Church’s One Foundation”

vv. 1-3

“Sit by Me at My right hand,” the Lord says to my Lord,

“Until I make Your foot stand on all who hate Your Word.”

From in His Church the Savior rules all His enemies;

While those who know His favor go forth the Lord to please.

vv. 3, 4

Filled with the Spirit’s power, in holy robes of love,

From early morning’s hour they serve their Lord above.

Christ reigns a priest forever, the King of Righteousness

And King of Peace who ever His chosen ones will bless.

vv. 5-7

The Lord at Your right hand, Lord, in wrath shall shatter kings,

When judgment by His strong Word, He to the nations brings.

Then, all His foes defeated, He takes His hard-won rest,

In glorious triumph seated with us, redeemed and blest!
