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
