Behold, O God our defender, and look upon the face of thine anointed.
Great prosperity givest thou unto thy king
and will show loving kindness unto thine anointed for evermore.
The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken to pieces.
Out of heaven shall he thunder upon them,
but he shall give strength unto his king
and exalt the horn of his anointed. Amen.
