1 Blest the man that fears Jehovah,
Walking ever in his ways,
By your toil you shall be prospered
And be happy all your days.
2 In your wife you shall have gladness,
She shall fill your home with good,
Happy in her loving service
And the joys of motherhood.
3 Joyful children, sons and daughters,
Shall about your table meet,
Olive plants, in strength and beauty,
Full of hope and promise sweet.
4 Lo, on him that fears Jehovah
Shall this blessedness attend,
For Jehovah out of Zion
Shall to you his blessing send.
5 You shall see God's kingdom prosper
All your days, till life shall cease,
You shall see your children's children;
On your people, Lord, be peace.
