SUGGESTED TUNE: HE LEADETH ME
This is the meter of the hymn "He Leadeth Me." This setting can also be used with a LM tune.
1. Bride of the king, lis-ten to me;
For-get your folk and fam-i-ly.
The king your beau-ty will de-sire;
He is your lord, whom you'll o-bey.
The folk of Tyre will bring you gifts;
The rich will bring all kinds of wealth.
The princ-ess wears gold-wo-ven robes
When she in pal-ace cham-bers is.
2. In bright robes she's led to the king;
Her brides-maids, too, are in her train.
With joy and glad-ness they are led
In-to the pal-ace of the king.
O king, may sons be born to you
Who will be rul-ers in the land.
I'll make your name be famed al-ways,
Peo-ples will praise you for all time.
