            G          A7        D                 A7                D
Un-less the Lord shall build the house, The wear-y build-ers toil in vain,

            D7             G                               D   A    D
Un-less the Lord the cit-y shields, The guards main-tain a use-less watch.

            A        A7       D                           A      A7  D
In vain you rise ere morn-ing break.  And late your night-ly vig-ils keep,

             D7                G                      D      A7 D
And bread of anx-ious care par-take, God gives to His be-lov-ed sleep.



              G       A7      D                 A7               D
Lo, chil-dren are the gift of God, And sons the bless-ing He com-mands,

              A         A7      D                    A         A7         D
These whom in youth-ful days be-stowed, Are like the shafts in war-riorís hands,

           A          A7       D                   A            A7 D
And hap-py they whose quiv-ers bear, Full store of ar-rows such as these,

            D7                 G                      D     A7   D
They in the gate are free from fear, And bold-ly face their en-e-mies.



            G         A7        D                   A7               D
That man is blest who fears the Lord, Who lives and walks in all His ways

           A      A7       D                 A            A7  D
For of his la-bor shall he eat, And he shall pros-per all his days.

               A    A7        D                       A    A7     D
His wife shall be a fruit-ful vine, His chil-dren all like ol-ive plants.

            D7                G                D             A7 D
Be-hold the man who fears the Lord, To him His blessing will af-ford.
