77c. Beati omnes

1 Blessed art thou that fearest God,
and walkest in his way:
2 For of thy labour thou shalt eat,
happy art thou I say.
3 Like fruitfull vines on thy house side,
so doth thy wife spring out:
Thy children stand like olive plants,
thy table round about.

4 Thus art thou blest that fearest God,
and he shall let thee see
5 The promised Jerusalem,
and her felicity.
6 Thou shalt thy childrens children see,
to thy great joyes increase"
And likewise grace on Israel,
prosperity and peace.
