Psalm 2

 Christ dying, rising, interceding, and reigning.
Acts 4:24, etc.
[Maker and sovereign Lord Of heav'n, and earth, and seas, Thy providence confirms thy word, And answers thy decrees.
The things so long foretold By David are fulfilled, When Jews and Gentiles joined to slay Jesus, thine holy child.
] Why did the Gentiles rage, And Jews, with one accord, Bend all their counsels to destroy Th' Anointed of the Lord? Rulers and kings agree To form a vain design; Against the Lord their powers unite, Against his Christ they join.
The Lord derides their rage, And will support his throne; He that hath raised him from the dead Hath owned him for his Son.
Now he's ascended high, And asks to rule the earth The merit of his blood he pleads, And pleads his heav'nly birth.
He asks, and God bestows A large inheritance; Far as the world's remotest ends His kingdom shall advance.
The nations that rebel Must feel his iron rod; He'll vindicate those honors well Which he received from God.
[Be wise, ye rulers, now, And worship at his throne; With trembling joy, ye people, bow To God's exalted Son.
If once his wrath arise, Ye perish on the place; Then blessed is the soul that flies For refuge to his grace.
