Psalm 127 - Unless the LORD Shall Build the HouseLaboring and Prospering with the Lord. A song of Ascents of Solomon.
An Introduction will play first, then begin your Psalm.
Unless the Lord shall build the house, The weary builders
toil in vain;
Unless the Lord the city shields, The guards maintain
a useless watch.
In vain you rise ere morning break, And late your nightly
And bread of anxious care partake; God gives to His beloved
Lo, children are the gift of God, And sons the blessing
These whom in youthful days bestowed, Are like the shafts
in warrior's hands.
And happy they whose quivers bear Full store of arrows
such as these;
They in the gate are free from fear, And boldly face
That man is blest who fears the Lord; Who lives and walks
in all His ways;
For of his labor shall he eat; And he shall prosper all
His wife shall be a fruitful vine; His children all like
Behold the man who fears the Lord! To Him his blessing
