Psalm 128

Words: Isaac Watts


   1  O happy man, whose soul is filled
         With zeal and reverent awe!
      His lips to God their honors yield,
         His life adorns the law.

   2  A careful providence shall stand
         And ever guard thy head,
      Shall on the labors of thy hand
         Its kindly blessings shed.

   3  Thy wife shall be a fruitful vine;
         Thy children round thy board
      Each like a plant of honor shine,
         and learn to fear the Lord.

   4  The Lord shall thy best hopes fulfill
         For months and years to come;
      The Lord, who dwells on Zion's hill,
         Shall send thee blessings home.

   5  This is the man whose happy eyes
         Shall see his house increase;
      Shall see the sinking church arise,
         Then leave the world in peace.
