- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Aria (bass solo) like as the arrows in the hand of the giant: even so are the young children.
- 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.
- 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.
