1 [Canticum graduum.]
  Beati omnes qui timent Dominum,
  qui ambulant in viis ejus.
2 Labores manuum tuarum quia manducabis: 
  beatus es, et bene tibi erit.
3 Uxor tua sicut vitis abundans in lateribus domus tuæ;
  filii tui sicut novellæ olivarum in circuitu mensæ tuæ.
4 Ecce sic benedicetur homo qui timet Dominum.
5 Benedicat tibi Dominus ex Sion,
  et videas bona Jerusalem omnibus diebus vitæ tuæ.
6 Et videas filios filiorum tuorum: pacem super Israël.

F. Mendelssohn sets line 1
