Psalter manuscript

Psalm 133: How beautiful, how fine


How beautiful, how fine
When friends see eye to eye,
And dwell communally as one,
In holy harmony!
Like precious fragrant oil
On sacred priestly gown
Poured out upon anointed head
Which to the ground seeps down.

Like sweet refreshing dew
Upon the hills each morn,
Evoking to all longing eyes
A sight of Eden’s dawn;
So all who work for peace
The Lord has pledged to bless
With joy unspeakable in life
And endless righteousness.
