Psalms for Messiah

Psalm 2 – I Have Installed My King on Zion


1 Why do the nations rage,
and the peoples plot in vain?
2 The kings and the rulers of the earth
take their stand
against the Lord
and against His anointed.
Selah
3 “Let us break their chains,” they say,
“and cast away their cords.”
4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs
the Lord scoffs at them.
5 Then He rebukes them in His anger
and terrifies them in His wrath,
6 “I have installed My king on Zion,
My holy hill.”
Selah
7 I will proclaim the decree of the Lord:
He said to me, “You are My Son;
Today I have become your Father.
8 Ask of Me and I will make
the nations your inheritance
Ask of Me and I will make
the ends of earth your possession.”
6 “I have installed My king on Zion,
My holy hill.”
Selah
9 You will break them with an iron rod.
You’ll smash them like a potter’s jar.
10 Therefore you kings be wise;
be warned you rulers of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord in fear;
rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest He be angry
and you perish in the way
when His wrath is kindled:
Blessed are they
that put their trust in Him.
6 “I have installed My king on Zion,
My holy hill.”
Repeat


Psalm 22a – Why Have You Forsaken Me?


My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?
Why are You so far from saving me?
Why are You so far from the words of my groaning?

Oh my God! I cry out by day and you don’t answer me.
Oh my God! I cry out by night and I’m not silent.

Yet You’re enthroned as the Holy One.
You are the praise of Israel!
In You our fathers put their trust.
They trusted You and You delivered them.
They cried to You and they were saved.
They trusted You and they were not confounded.

But… I am a worm and not a man.
Scorned by men and despised by the people.
All they that see me laugh me to scorn.
They shoot out the lip, the shake their heads saying…
He trusts in the LORD, let the LORD rescue him.
Let Him deliver him, since He delights in him.

Yet You are He that brought me out of the womb.
You made me trust upon my mother’s breast.
From birth I was cast upon You.
From my mother’s womb you have been my God.
Do not be far from me.
Trouble is near and there’s no one to help.

My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?


Psalm 22b – They Have Pierced My Hands and My Feet


Many bulls surround me.
Strong bulls of Bashan encircle me.
Roaring lions tearing their prey,
open their mouths wide against me.

I am poured out like water
and all my bones are out of joint!
My heart is turned to wax;
It is melted away within me.
Away within me… Away… within me.

My strength is dried up like a potsherd.
My tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth.
You lay me in the dust of death.
Dogs have surrounded me;
A band of evil men encircled me.

They’ve pierced my hands and my feet.
I can count all of my bones.
People stare and gloat over me.
They gloat over me. They gloat… over me.

They divide my garments among them;
…And cast lots for my clothing.
Do not be far from me O LORD!

O my strength come quickly to help me!
Deliver my life from the sword
My precious life… my precious life…
from the power of the dogs.
Save me from the mouth of the lions!


Psalm 22c – He Has Accomplished It

Track coming soon!
I will declare Thy Name unto my brethren;
In the midst of the congregation I will praise You.

You who fear the LORD, praise Him!
All you, seed of Jacob, glorify Him.
Fear Him, all you seed of Israel!

For He has not despised nor abhorred
the affliction of the afflicted One,
nor has He hid His face from him;
but when he cried unto Him He heard.

My praise shall be of Thee, in the great assembly.
I will pay my vows before them that fear Him.
The meek shall eat and be satisfied
They shall praise the LORD that seek Him:
your heart shall live forever!

All of the ends of the earth shall turn;
shall remember and turn unto the LORD;
And all the families of the nations
shall worship before Him;
for the Kingdom is the LORD’s.
He is the governor among the nations!

All of the rich of the earth will feast… (and worship)
All who go down to the dust will kneel (before Him)
and worship before Him
Those who cannot keep themselves alive.

Future generations will be told about the LORD,
and a seed shall serve Him.
They shall proclaim His righteousness
to a people yet unborn.
For He has accomplished it!
He has done it! repeat


Psalm 110 – The LORD Has Sworn

1 The LORD said unto my Lord
“Sit Thou at My right hand,
until I make your enemies
a footstool under your feet.”
2 The LORD will extend
your mighty scepter from Zion.
You will rule
in the midst of your enemies.
3 Your people will be willing in
the Day of your power.
In the beauties of holiness,
from the womb of the morning,
You have the dew of Thy youth.
4 The LORD has sworn
(and He will not change His mind)
“You are a priest forever;
After the order of Melchizedek
You are a priest forever.”
5 My Lord at Thy right hand
will strike through kings in that Day.
He will strike through kings in that Day;
in the Day of His wrath.
6 He will judge the nations
heaping up the dead;
crushing the rulers of the earth.
7 He shall drink of the brook
beside the way;
therefore he’ll lift up the head.
3 In the beauties of holiness,
from the womb of the morning,
You have the dew of Thy youth.


Psalm 132 – LORD Remember David

LORD, remember David!
and all of his afflictions…
How he sware unto the LORD,
vowed unto the mighty God
of Jacob…

Surely I will not come
into the tabernacle of my house,
nor go up into my bed,
Nor go up into my bed.
I will not give sleep unto my eyes,
nor slumber to mine eyelids,
Until I find a place for the LORD;
a habitation for the mighty God
of Jacob…

Lo we heard of it at Ephratah.
We found it in the field
of the wood,
We will come into His house,
we will worship at His feet.

Arise O LORD into Thy rest;
Thou, and the ark of Thy strength.
Let Thy priests be clothed
with righteousness.
And let Thy saints shout for joy
Let Thy saints shout for joy!

LORD, remember David!
and all of his afflictions…
How he sware unto the LORD,
vowed unto the mighty God
of Jacob…

For Thy servant David’s sake,
turn not away the face of Thine anointed.
The LORD has sworn in truth unto David;
He will not turn from it.

For the LORD hath chosen Zion.
He has desired it for His habitation.
“This is My rest forever.
Here will I dwell.
I have desired it.”

“I will abundantly
bless her provision,
satisfy her poor with bread”
I will also clothe her priests with salvation;
And her saints shall shout aloud for joy,
and her saints shall shout aloud for joy!”

LORD, remember David!
and all of his afflictions…
How he sware unto the LORD,
vowed unto the mighty God
