Text[edit | edit source]

Original Lyrics

   You faithful servants of the Lord,
   sing out his praise with one accord,
   while serving him with all your might
   and keeping vigil through the night.
   Unto his house lift up your hand
   and to the Lord your praises send.
   May God who made the earth and sky
   bestow his blessings from on high. 
   Genevan Psalter - Psalms 134
