Like Olive Shoots (Psalm 128)

From your labor you shall eat and of its fruits.

And you shall be happy. All go well with you.

Children round your table, grow like olive shoots.

Fear the Lord, walk in God’s ways in all you do. 

———-

If you wish God’s blessing, seek it from its source.

Find its polar star, and by it set your course.  

May you see your children’s children in your time

Peace be on you now, and to eternal life.
