KJV Text (alt. audio): Chapter 2: 1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, 3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. 4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. 5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. 6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. 7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. 8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. 9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel. 10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. 11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.(KJV)

6. Naught, naught, can now condemn me 
Nor set my hope aside; 
Now hell no more can claim me, 
Its fury I deride. 
No sentence e’er reproves me, 
No ill destroys my peace; 
For Christ, my Savior, loves me 
And shields me with His grace. 

7. His Spirit in me dwelleth, 
And o’er my mind He reigns. 
All sorrow He dispelleth 
And soothes away all pains. 
He crowns His work with blessing 
And helpeth me to cry, 
“My Father!” without ceasing, 
To Him who dwells on high. 

8. And when my soul is lying 
Weak, trembling, and opprest, 
He pleads with groans and sighing 
That cannot be exprest; 
But God’s quick eye discerns them, 
Although they give no sound, 
And into language turns them 
E’en in the heart’s deep ground. 

9. To mine His Spirit speaketh 
Sweet word of holy cheer, 
How God to him that seeketh 
For rest is always near 
And how He hath erected 
A city fair and new, 
Where what our faith expected 
We evermore shall view. 

10. In yonder home doth flourish 
My heritage, my lot; 
Though here I die and perish, 
My heaven shall fail me not. 
Though care my life oft saddens 
And causeth tears to flow, 
The light of Jesus gladdens 
And sweetens every woe.
