Psalm 128

Words: The Scottish Psalter

Common Metre Tunes

 1  Blessed is each one that fears the Lord,
       and walketh in his ways;
 2  For of thy labour thou shalt eat,
       and happy be always.

 3  Thy wife shall as a fruitful vine
       by thy house' sides be found:
    Thy children like to olive-plants
        about thy table round.

 4  Behold, the man that fears the Lord,
       thus bless-ed shall he be.
 5  The Lord shall out of Zion give
       his blessing unto thee:

    Thou shalt Jerus'lem's good behold
       whilst thou on earth dost dwell.
 6  Thou shalt thy children's children see,
       and peace on Israel.
