PSALM 128
METER:  86 886
SUGGESTED TUNE:  REST
This is the meter of such hymns as "Dear Lord and Father of Mankind."

1.  Hap-py are those who fear the Lord,
    Who live by his com-mands.
    Your work will for your needs pro-vide,
    And you shall ev-er hap-py be;
    It shall be well with you.
2.  Your wife will be a fruit-ful vine
    Who dwells with-in your home;
    Your child-ren like young ol-ive trees
    Who sit a=round your table there;
    So blest those who fear God.
3.  May God from Zi-on bless you e'er.
    May you through-out your life
    Je-ru-sa-lem's well-be-ing see.
    Grand-child-ren may you live to know.
    Peace be with Is-ra-el!
