The Lord is King,
be the people never so impatient:
He sitteth between the cherubims,
be the earth never so unquiet.
O, thou sword of the Lord,
put up thyself into the scabbard,
rest and be still.
Some put their trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.
He maketh peace in our borders,
and causeth war to cease in all the world.
O that men would therefore
praise the Lord for his goodness,
and declare the wonders that he
doth for the children of men.
That they would exult him also
in the congregation of the people:
and praise him in the seat of the elders.
