Psalm 127 Unless the Lord Builds the House


Psalm 127 (NKJV)
1 Unless the LORD builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the LORD guards the city,
The watchman stays awake in vain.
2 It is vain for you to rise up early,
To sit up late,
To eat the bread of sorrows;
For so He gives His beloved sleep.

3 Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of ones youth.
5 Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them;
They shall not be ashamed,
But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.

    Thank you WaiEsther Mui. Yes your voice is so beautiful! I'm going to learn this song and see if we can teach it to our congregation. It's part of the memory verse for June! The tune you selected (and your voice) just draws a person into the song.

  3. Dear Mrs. Mui,

    1. Hi, Thank you for your comment. I've just uploaded the sheet music to this song. My apologies for taking so long to respond.
