Psalm 128

(from Day 27 Evening Prayer)

Beati omnes

  1. BLESSED are all they that fear the Lord: and walk in his ways.
  2. For thou shalt eat the labours of thine hands: O well is thee, and happy shalt thou be.
  3. Thy wife shall be as the fruitful vine: upon the walls of thine house.
  4. Thy children like the olive-branches: round about thy table.
  5. Lo, thus shall the man be blessed: that feareth the Lord.
  6. The Lord from out of Sion shall so bless thee: that thou shalt see Jerusalem in prosperity all thy life long.
  7. Yea, that thou shalt see thy children's children: and peace upon Israel.
