How blest are all the people who fear and trust the LORD.
Your faithful work will bring you rich fruit as your reward.
Rich as a budding vineyard your wife will grace the home;
like olive shoots your children will grow both wise and strong.
GENEVAN 128 was first published in the 1543 edition of the Genevan Psalter. Claude Goudimel (PHH 6) harmonized the tune in 1564; originally the melody was in the tenor. In the Dorian mode, this tune consists of four long lines in two pairs, consisting of slightly different rhythmic patterns. A striking melody with larger intervals at the beginnings of lines 1 and 2, GENEVAN 128 is worth the effort it may require to learn.
