Psalmus
(Ps. 125) In converténdo Dóminus captivitátem Sion:
facti sumus sicut consoláti:
2. Tunc replétum est gáudio os nostrum:
et lingua nostra exsultatióne.
3. Tunc dicent inter Gentes:
Magnificávit Dóminus fácere cum eis.
4. Magnificávit Dóminus fácere nobíscum:
facti sumus lætántes.
5. Convérte, Dómine, captivitátem nostram,
sicut torrens in austro.
6. Qui séminant in lácrimis,
in exsultatióne metent.
7. Eúntes ibant et flebant,
mitténtes sémina sua.
8. Veniéntes autem vénient cum exsultatióne,
portántes manípulos suos.
9. Réquiem ætérnam
dona eis Dómine.
10. Et lux perpétua
lúceat eis.
11. (Ps. 126) Nisi Dóminus ædificáverit domum,
in vanum laboravérunt qui ædíficant eam.
12. Nisi Dóminus custodíerit civitátem,
frustra vígilat qui custódit eam.
13. Vanum est vobis ante lucem súrgere:
súrgite postquam sedéritis, qui manducátis panem dolóris.
14. Cum déderit diléctis suis somnum:
ecce heréditas Dómini fílii: merces, fructus ventris.
15. Sicut sagíttæ in manu poténtis:
ita fílii excussórum.
16. Beátus vir qui implévit desidérium suum ex ipsis:
non confundétur cum loquétur inimícis suis in porta.
17. Réquiem ætérnam
dona eis Dómine.
18. Et lux perpétua
lúceat eis.
19. (Ps. 127) Beáti omnes, qui timent Dóminum,
qui ámbulant in viis ejus.
20. Labóres mánuum tuárum quia manducábis:
beátus es, et bene tibi erit.
21. Uxor tua sicut vitis abúndans:
in latéribus domus tuæ.
22. Fílii tui sicut novéllæ olivárum:
in circúitu mensæ tuæ.
23. Ecce sic benedicétur homo,
qui timet Dóminum.
24. Benedícat tibi Dóminus ex Sion:
et vídeas bona Jerúsalem ómnibus diébus vitæ tuæ.
25. Et vídeas fílios filiórum tuórum:
pacem super Israël.
26. Réquiem ætérnam
dona eis Dómine.
27. Et lux perpétua
lúceat eis.
(Ps. 125) When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,
then were we like those who dream.
2. Then was our mouth filled with laughter,
and our tongue with shouts of joy.
3. Then they said among the nations,
"The Lord has done great things for them."
4. The Lord has done great things for us,
and we are glad indeed.
5. Restore our fortunes, O Lord,
like the watercourses of the Negev.
6. Those who sowed with tears
will reap with songs of joy.
7. Those who go out weeping,
carrying the seed,
8. will come again with joy,
shouldering their sheaves.
9. Eternal rest
grant unto them, O Lord,
10. and let perpetual light
shine upon them.
11. (Ps. 126) Unless the Lord builds the house,
their labor is in vain who build it.
12. Unless the Lord watches over the city,
in vain the watchman keeps his vigil.
13. It is in vain that you rise so early and go to bed so late;
vain, too, to eat the bread of toil,
14. for he gives to his beloved sleep.
Children are a heritage from the Lord, and the fruit of the womb is a gift.
15. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
are the children of one's youth.
16. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them!
he shall not be put to shame when he contends with his enemies in the gate.
17. Eternal rest
grant unto them, O Lord,
18. and let perpetual light
shine upon them.
19. (Ps. 127) appy are they all who fear the Lord,
and who follow in his ways!
20. You shall eat the fruit of your labor;
happiness and prosperity shall be yours.
21. Your wife shall be like a fruitful
vine within your house,
22. your children like olive
shoots round about your table.
23. The man who fears the Lord
shall thus indeed be blessed.
24. The Lord bless you from Zion,
and may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life.
25. May you live to see your children's children;
may peace be upon Israel.
26. Eternal rest
grant unto them, O Lord,
27. and let perpetual light
shine upon them.
