Nisi Dominus [Quinti Toni], a 8 (Ps. 126)


Nisi dominus

edificaverit domum

in vanum laboraverunt

qui edificant eam.


nisi Dominuscustodierit civitatem

frustra vigilat

qui custodit eam.


Vanum est vobis ante lucem surgere

surgite post quam  sederitis

qui manducatis panem doloris.

Cum dederit dilectis suis somnum

ecce haereditas domini filii, merces, fructus ventris.

Sicut sagitte in manu potentis ita filii escussorum.

Beatus vir qui implevit,

Desiderium suum ex ipsis

non confundetur cum loquetur

inimicis suis in porta.


Gloria patri et filio, et spiritui sancto,

Sicut erat et nunc et semper

et in secula seculorum amen.




Lest the Lord build the house, in vain shall

work those who build it.

Lest the Lord keep the city, in vain shall

work [he] who keeps watch over it.

Vain is for you before the light to wake:

wake up after you have rested, [you] who

eat the bread of pain.

For he gave, to the beloved of his, rest,

here [are] the inheritance of the Lord, the

children; rewards, the fruit of the womb.

As arrows in the hand of the mighty, so the

children of them [that have been] shaken.

Blessed [is] the man who filled the quiver

of his with them; not shall he be

confounded when he shall speak to his

enemies at the gate.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son:

and to the Holy Ghost;

As it was in the beginning, is now, and

ever shall be: world without end. Amen.
