Lord, remember David, how he vowed unto the Lord:
Surely, I will not come into the tabernacle of my house;
I will not go up to bed, nor give sleep to mine eyes;
Neither slumber nor sleep will I give to mine eyes
Until I find out a place for the Lord.
Lo, we have heard of it at Ephrata:
We have found it in the fields of the wood.
We will go into thy tabernacles:
We will worship at his footstool.
Let thy priests by clothed in righteousness;
And let thy saints shout aloud for joy.
Lord, remember thy servant, and for his sake
Turn not away the face of thine anointed.
