WHY DO THE NATIONS CONSPIRE. Psalm 2

    Mi-                    La-
C.  Why do the nations conspire,                |
                              Mi-               |
    Why do the people plot in vain              |
                                   La-          |
    The kings of the earth rise in revolt       | (Ass.Rpt.)
                     Si7                        |
    The princes plot together                   |
                                          Mi-   |
    against the Lord and against His Messiah.   |


     Mi-
C.  "Let us break their fetters,
               	            La-
    cast away their ropes that bind us."
                                      Si7
    But the One who is in heaven sits laughing,
    
    the Lord mocks them from above
    
    He speaks to them in His anger,
                               Mi-
    He frightens them with His Fury.


    La-                 Mi-
A.  I ANOINTED HIM MY SOVEREIGN                         |
                    Si7                             Mi- | (x2)
    ON ZION MY HOLY MOUNTAIN, ON ZION MY HOLY MOUNTAIN. |


    Mi-                               La-
C.  Let me proclaim the decree of the Lord,
                                Si7
    He has told me, "You are my Son,
                      Mi-
    today I have begotten you.
                                             La-
    Ask me, and to you I will give all the nations,
                                             Si7
    and the ends of the earth for your heritage.
    
    You will break them with a sceptre of iron,
                                      Mi-
    shattering them like vessels of clay".


    La-                 Mi-
A.  I ANOINTED HIM MY SOVEREIGN                         |
                    Si7                             Mi- | (x2)
    ON ZION MY HOLY MOUNTAIN, ON ZION MY HOLY MOUNTAIN. |


    La-               Si7
C.  And now, O Kings, be wise,
       La-                        Si7
    Be disciplined, Judges of the earth;
    
    serve the Lord with fear,
                         Mi-
    and rejoice with trembling,
                                    La-
    lest He grow angry and you lose the way
                              Si7
    for His wrath is quick to blaze.
                                       Mi-
    Happy the man who takes shelter in Him.
