Psalm 127

Unless the Lord builds the house :
 their labour is but lost that build it.
Unless the Lord keeps the city :
 the watchmen watch in vain.
It is in vain that you rise up early
   and go so late to rest, eating the bread of toil :
 for the Lord bestows honour and on those whom he loves.
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord :
 and the fruit of the womb is his gift.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior :
 are the sons of a man’s youth.
Happy the man who has his quiver full of them :
 he will not be put to shame
   when he confronts his enemies at the gate.
