May he be enthroned in God’s presence for ever; appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.
He will abide before God forever; Appoint lovingkindness and truth that they may preserve him.
May he reign under God’s protection forever. Appoint your unfailing love and faithfulness to watch over him.
Set his throne in the full light of God; post Steady Love and Good Faith as lookouts,
May the seat of his authority be before God for ever; may mercy and righteousness keep him safe.
May he be enthroned forever before God; appoint steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him!
He shall abide before God forever. Oh, prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him!
