Pay attention to my cry for help, my king and my God, for I am praying to you!
Even the birds find a home there, and the swallow builds a nest, where she can protect her young near your altars, O Lord who rules over all, my king and my God.
Look up, you gates! Rise up, you eternal doors! Then the majestic king will enter!
Sing to God! Sing! Sing to our king! Sing!
But God has been my king from ancient times, performing acts of deliverance on the earth.
The Lord reigns! The nations tremble. He sits enthroned above the winged angels; the earth shakes.
A psalm of praise, by David. I will extol you, my God, O king! I will praise your name continually!
