Lord, remember David and all his anxious care;
How he swore an oath to the Lord, vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob:
“I will not enter the house where I live, nor lie on the couch where I sleep;
I will give my eyes no sleep, my eyelids no rest,
Till I find a home for the Lord, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”
We have heard of it in Ephrathah; we have found it in the fields of Jaar.
Let us enter God’s dwelling; let us worship at God’s footstool.
Arise, Lord, come to your resting place, you and your majestic ark.
Your priests will be clothed with justice; your faithful will shout for joy.
For the sake of David your servant, do not reject your anointed.
