Singing of God’s Blessings on the Family

Following is the Scottish metrical version (the arrangement for singing) of Psalm 128:

1 Bless’d is each one that fears the Lord,

And walketh in his ways;

2 For of thy labour thou shalt eat,

And happy be always.

3 Thy wife shall as a fruitful vine

By thy house’ sides be found:

Thy children like to olive-plants about thy table round.

4 Behold, the man that fears the Lord, thus blessed shall he be.

5 The Lord shall out of Sion give His blessing unto thee:

Thou shalt Jerus’lem’s good behold whilst thou on earth dost dwell.

6 Thou shalt thy children’s children see, and peace on Israel.
