Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord,
    who walks in his ways!
You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands;
    you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you.

Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
    within your house;
your children will be like olive shoots
    around your table.
Behold, thus shall the man be blessed
    who fears the Lord.

The Lord bless you from Zion!
    May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem
    all the days of your life!
May you see your children’s children!
    Peace be upon Israel!

Psalm 128

The Resurrection Reunion of Families, Stanley Spencer (1945)From a wandering nomad You created your family; (Abraham)

for a burdened people You raised up a leader; (Moses)

for a confused nation You chose a king; (David)

for a rebellious crowd You sent your prophets.

In these last days You have sent us Your Son, Your perfect image, bringing Your Kingdom,

revealing Your will, dying, rising, reigning, remaking Your people for Yourself.

Through Him You have poured out Your Holy Spirit,

filling us with light and life.
