Psalmus 126.
(5a)
Psalm 126.
126:1. Nisi Dóminus ædificáverit domum, *
in vanum laboravérunt qui æficant eam.
1. Unless the Lord build the house, * they labour in vain that build it.
126:2. Nisi Dóminus custodíerit civitem, *
frustra vígilat qui custódit eam.
2. Unless the Lord keep the city, * he watcheth in vain that keepeth it.
126:3. Vanum est vobis ante lucem súrgere : *
súrgite postquam sedéritis, qui manducátis panem doris.
3. It is vain for you to rise before light, * rise ye after you have sitten, you that eat the bread of sorrow.
126:4. Cum déderit diléctis suis somnum : *
ecce heréditas Dómini fílii : merces, fructus ventris.
4. When he shall give sleep to his beloved, * behold the inheritance of the Lord are children: the reward, the fruit of the womb.
126:5. Sicut sagíttæ in manu poténtis : *
ita fílii excusrum.
5. As arrows in the hand of the mighty, * so the children of them that have been shaken.
126:6. Beátus vir, qui implévit desidérium suum ex ipsis : *
non confundétur cum loquétur inimícis suis in porta.
6. Blessed is the man that hath filled the desire with them; * he shall not be confounded when he shall speak to his enemies in the gate.
V. Glória Patri, et lio, *
et Spitui Sancto.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, *
et in sǽcula sæcurum. Amen.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
