May the children of the Church be like olive branches ’round the table of the LORD.
Happy are all who fear the LORD, who walk in the ways of God.
What your hands provide you will enjoy; you will be happy and prosper
Like a fruitful vine your wife within your home, your children ’round your table.
Just so will they be blessed who fear the LORD. Antiphon
May the LORD bless you from Zion,
all the days of your life that you may share Jerusalem’s joy
and live to see your children’s children.
Peace upon Israel! Peace upon Israel! Antiphon
