Memento, Domine.

LORD, re- | -member David,

* and | all his trouble:

2 How he sware | unto• the LORD,

* and vowed a vow unto the Al- | -mighty God of Jacob:

3 I will not come within the tabernacle | of mine house,

* nor | climb up •into• my bed;

4 I will not suffer mine eyes to sleep, nor mine | eyelids• to slumber;

* neither the temples of my head to | take any rest;

5 Until I find out a place for the temple | of the LORD;

* an habitation for the | Mighty God of Jacob.

6 Lo, we heard of the | same at Ephratah,

* and | found it in the wood.

7 We will go into his | tabernacle,

* and fall low on our | knees before his footstool.

8 Arise, O LORD, into thy | resting-place;

* thou, and the | ark of thy strength.

9 Let thy priests be | clothed with righteousness;

* and let thy | saints sing with joyfulness.

10 For thy servant | David's sake,

* turn not away the | face of thine anointed.

11 The LORD hath made a faithful oath | unto David,

* and he | shall not shrink from it:

12 Of the fruit | of thy body

* shall I | set upon thy throne.

13 If thy children will keep my covenant, and my testimonies that | I shall teach them;

* their children also shall sit upon thy | throne for evermore.

14 For the LORD hath chosen Sion to be an habitation | for himself;

* he hath | longed for her.

15 This shall be my | rest for ever:

* here will I dwell, for I | have a• delight therein.

16 I will bless her | victuals• with increase,

* and will satis- | -fy her poor with bread.

17 I will deck her | priests with health,

* and her saints | shall rejoice and sing.

18 There shall I make the horn of | David• to flourish:

* I have ordained a | lantern• for mine anointed.

19 As for his enemies, I shall clothe | them with shame;

* but upon himself | shall his crown flourish.

Glory be to the Father, and | to the Son,

* and | to the Holy Ghost,

As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever shall be,

* world without | end.  Amen.
