Psalm 127.1  Except the LORD shall build the house
the builders lose their pain.
Except the LORD the city keep
the watchmen watch in vain.

2 ‘Tis vain for you to rise betimes,
or late from rest to keep,
to eat the bread of toil; for so
He gives His loved ones sleep.

3 Lo, children are the LORD’s good gift;
rich payment are men’s sons.
4 The sons of youth as arrows are
in hands of mighty ones.

5 Who has his quiver filled with these,
O happy shall he be;
when foes they greet within the gate
they shall from shame be free.
