Note: this setting is made up of several separate texts.

1 [Canticum graduum Salomonis.] Nisi Dominus ædificaverit domum,
  in vanum laboraverunt qui ædificant eam.
  Nisi Dominus custodierit civitatem, frustra vigilat qui custodit eam.
2 Vanum est vobis ante lucem surgere: surgite postquam sederitis,
  qui manducatis panem doloris. Cum dederit dilectis suis somnum,
3 ecce hæreditas Domini, filii; merces, fructus ventris.
4 Sicut sagittæ in manu potentis, ita filii excussorum.
5 Beatus vir qui implevit desiderium suum ex ipsis:
  non confundetur cum loquetur inimicis suis in porta.
