Blessed are those who fear the Lord

Psalm 127

  • Refrain:
    Blessed are those who fear the Lord.
    Blessed are those who fear the Lord.
  • (Spoken verses)
  1. Blessed are you who fear the Lord
    and walk in God's ways!
    By your labour you shall eat,
    be happy and prosper.
  2. Your wife like a fruitful vine
    in the heart of your house;
    your children like shoots of the olive,
    around your table.
  3. Yes, Indeed, you shall be blessed,
    you who fear God.
    May the Lord God bless you
    all the days of your life.
