Psalms 127
Unless the land where ye abide,
The care of Heaven boasts;
Falsely to watchmen ye confide,
The safety of its coasts.
Except the Lord will fortify
The fabrics ye erect;
Vain are the pillars, strong and high,
Of mortal architect.
Whether oh! Judah ye sojourn
In deserts, towns, or tents;
To God, as to your fortress turn,
Your tower of defence.
On land and sea, enslaved or free,
His name alone extol;
Who is, who was, and e’er shall be,
Guardian and King of all.

“Unless the land where ye abide (Psalm CXXVII),” by Penina Moïse, was published in 1842, and appears under the subject “Divine Providence in Relation to Israel” as Hymn 11 in Hymns Written for the Service of the Hebrew Congregation Beth Elohim, South Carolina (Penina Moïse et al., Ḳ.Ḳ. Beth Elohim, 1842), p. 16. –Aharon Varady
