1A gradual canticle.
Blessed are all they that fear the Lord: that walk in his ways. 2For thou shalt eat the labours of thy hands: blessed art thou, and it shall be well with thee. 3Thy wife as a fruitful vine, on the sides of thy house. Thy children as olive plants, round about thy table. 4Behold, thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord. 5May the Lord bless thee out of Sion: and mayest thou see the good things of Jerusalem all the days of thy life. 6And mayest thou see thy children's children, peace upon Israel.
