Psalm 128

Words: Brady and  Tate, A New Version of the Psalms of David


   1  The man is blest who fears the Lord,
         nor only worship pays,
      But keeps his steps confined with care
         to his appointed ways. 
   2  He shall upon the sweet returns
         of his own labor feed;
      Without dependence live, and see
         his wishes all succeed. 
   3  His wife, like a fair fertile vine,
         her lovely fruit shall bring;
      His children, like young olive plants,
         about his table spring. 
 4,5  Who fears the Lord shall prosper thus;
         him Zion's God shall bless,
      and grant him all his days to see
         Jerusalem's success.
   6  He shall live on, till heirs from him
         descend with vast increase;
      Much blessed in his own prosp'rous state,
         and more in Israel's peace.
