All Good Things Come from God
A song for going up to worship. Of Solomon.
1If the Lord doesn’t build the house,
the builders are working for nothing.
If the Lord doesn’t guard the city,
the guards are watching for nothing.
2It is no use for you to get up early
and stay up late,
working for a living.
The Lord gives sleep to those he loves.
3Children are a gift from the Lord;
babies are a reward.
4Children who are born to a young man
are like arrows in the hand of a warrior.
5Happy is the man
who has his bag full of arrows.
They will not be defeated
when they fight their enemies at the city gate.
