Psalm 128: Bless Us, O Lord


The idea of “blessing” runs throughout the Pilgrim Psalms, coming to full bloom in Psalm 128. The heart of this Psalm’s message is “Serve God, work hard, and God will bless you.” While this may sound like “works righteousness,” I would suggest a much simpler conclusion: God is very fond of us and wants to shower us with good things!

“Bless Us, O Lord” sticks close to the theme, with the people singing only those four words in response to a leader’s verses.
