Psalm 110 (Listen)

Sit at My Right Hand

A Psalm of David.


110:1   The LORD says to my Lord:
    “Sit at my right hand,
  until I make your enemies your footstool.”


  The LORD sends forth from Zion
    your mighty scepter.
    Rule in the midst of your enemies!
  Your people will offer themselves freely
    on the day of your power,1
    in holy garments;2
  from the womb of the morning,
    the dew of your youth will be yours.3
  The LORD has sworn
    and will not change his mind,
  “You are a priest forever
    after the order of Melchizedek.”


  The Lord is at your right hand;
    he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath.
  He will execute judgment among the nations,
    filling them with corpses;
  he will shatter chiefs4
    over the wide earth.
  He will drink from the brook by the way;
    therefore he will lift up his head.

KJV Text (alt. audio): Chapter 110:

     1 A Psalm of David. The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. 2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. 3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth. 4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

     5 The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. 6 He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries. 7 He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 213:
Hail the Day that Sees Him Rise

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. Hail the day that sees Him rise 
To His throne above the skies 
Christ, awhile to mortals given 
Reascends His native heaven 

2. There the glorious triumph waits 
Lift your heads, eternal gates 
Christ hath conquered death and sin 
Take the King of glory in 

3. See the Heav’n its Lord receives, 
Yet He loves the earth He leaves, 
Though returning to His throne, 
Still He calls mankind His own 

4. See! He lifts His hands above 
See! He shows the prints of love 
Hark! His gracious lips bestow 
Blessings on His church below 

5. Still for us He intercedes 
His prevailing death He pleads 
Near Himself prepares our place 
Harbinger of human race 

6. There we shall with Thee remain 
Partners of Thy endless reign 
There Thy face unclouded see 
Find our heaven of heavens in Thee
