Text & English Translation
Nisi Dominus aedificaverit domum:
in vanum laboraverunt qui aedificant eam.
Nisi Dominus custodierit civitatem:
frustra vigilat qui custodit eam.
Vanum est vobis ante lucem surgere:
surgite postquam sederitis
qui manducatis panem doloris.
Cum dederit dilectis suis somnum:
ecce haereditas Domini, filii:
merces, fructus ventris.
Sicut sagittae in manu potentis:
ita filii excussorum.
Beatus vir qui implevit desiderium suum ex ipsis:
non confundetur cum loquetur
inimicis suis in porta.
Gloria Patri et Filio :
et Spiritui Sancto.
Sicut erat in principio et nunc et semper:
et in secula seculorum. Amen.
Unless the Lord build the house:
they labor in vain that build it.
Unless the Lord keep the city:
he watcheth in vain that keepeth it.
It is vain for you to rise before dawn:
rise after you have rested,
you who eat the bread of sorrow.
When He shall give sleep to His beloved:
behold the inheritance of the Lord are children:
the reward, the fruit of the womb.
As arrows in the hand of the mighty:
so are the children of them that have been
Blessed is the man that hath filled the desire with
he shall not be confounded when he shall speak
to his enemies in the gate.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son :
and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, now, and for ever:
world without end. Amen.
