PCXXVIIIa. A Song of Degrees

1 How greatly blessed is the man,
how blessed all his days,
Who fears JEHOVAH, and who walks
uprightly in his ways.
2 For thy hands labour thou shalt eat
and happy shalt thou be:
In all the changes of thy life,
it shall be well with thee.

3 Thy wife shall like a fruitful vine
by thy house side be found
Thy children like fair olive plants
adorn thy table, round.
4 Lo thus the man who fears the LORD
shall greatly blessed be!
5 Yea more, the LORD from Zion will
his blessing send to thee.

The good of our Jerusalem,
her great felicity,
Thou shalt thro' all thy lengthned life
with raised pleasure see.
6 Yea of thy children's children thou
shalt see a glad increase,
And our dear land of Israel,
in all the joys of peace.
