Psalm 127

1  Unless the Lord builds the house, 
   those who build it labour in vain.
2  Unless the Lord keeps the city, 
   the guard keeps watch in vain.
3  It is in vain that you hasten to rise up early
      and go so late to rest, eating the bread of toil, 
   for he gives his beloved sleep.
4  Children are a heritage from the Lord 
   and the fruit of the womb is his gift.
5  Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, 
   so are the children of one’s youth.
6  Happy are those who have their quiver full of them: 
   they shall not be put to shame
      when they dispute with their enemies in the gate.
