  1. Soloists and chorus except the lord build the house: their labour is but lost that build it except the lord keep the city: the watchman waketh but in vain.
  2. Aria (tenor solo) it is but lost labour that ye haste to rise up early, and so late take rest, and eat the bread of carefulness.
  3. Aria (countertenor solo) for so he giveth his beloved sleep. lo, children and the fruit of the womb: are an heritage and gift that cometh of the lord.
  4. Aria (bass solo) like as the arrows in the hand of the giant: even so are the young children.
  5. Aria (tenor solo) happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed when they speak with their enemies in the gate.
  6. Double chorus 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.
