Psalm text (Ps 128:1-2, 3, 4-5)

Blessed are those who fear the Lord.
See how the Lord blesses those who fear him.

Blessed are you who fear the Lord,
who walk in his ways!
For you shall eat fruit of your handiwork;
blessed shall you be, and favored.

Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
in the recesses of your home;
Your children like olive plants
around your table.

Behold, thus is the man blessed
who fears the Lord.
The Lord bless you from Zion:
may you see prosperity of Jerusalem
all the days of your life.
