My Heart Is Stirred by a Noble Theme
(1 Kings 3:1–15; 2 Chronicles 1:1–13; Psalm 72:1–20)

1My hert is dytinge of a good matter, I speake of that, which I haue made of the kynge: My tonge is ye penne of a ready wryter.

2Thou art the fayrest amonge the children of me, full of grace are thy lippes, therfore God blesseth the for euer.

3Gyrde the with thy swerde vpon thy thee (o thou mightie) with worshipe and renowne.

4Good lucke haue thou with thine honoure, ryde on with the treuth, mekenesse & rightuousnes: & thy right hode shal teach ye woderfull thinges.

5Thy arowes are sharpe, the people shalbe subdued vnto the, euen in the myddest amonge the kynges enemies.

6Thy seate (o God) endureth for euer: the cepter of thy kyngdome is a right cepter.

7Thou hast loued rightuousnesse, & hated iniquite: wherfore God (which is thy God) hath anoynted the with the oyle of gladnes aboue thy felowes.

8All thy garmentes are like myrre, Aloes & Cassia, when thou comest out of thine yuerie palaces in thy beutifull glory.

9Kynges doughters go in thy goodly araye, & vpon thy right honde stondeth the quene in a vesture of the most fyne golde.

10Herken (o doughter) considre, & enclyne thine eare: forget thine owne people, & thy fathers house.

11So shal the kynge haue pleasure in thy beutie, for he is thy LORDE, & thou shalt worshipe him.

12The doughters of Tyre shal be there with giftes, the riche amonge the people shal make their supplicacion before the.

13The kynges doughter is all glorious within, hir clothinge is of wrought golde.

14She shalbe brought vnto the kynge in rayment of nedle worke, and maydens after her: soch as be next her shalbe brought vnto the.

15With ioye and gladnesse shal they be brought, and go in to the kynges palace.

16In steade of thy fathers thou hast gotten children, whom thou shalt make prynces in all londes.

17I wil remembre thy name from one generacio to another: therfore shal the people geue thankes vnto the, worlde without ende.
