Psalm 127

1] Unless the house be built for the Cause, vain is the labour of they who build it
        Unless the city be a city of the Cause, vain is the labour of they who guard it

2] It is vain to rise early or sit up late, or to eat coarse bread, save that benefit the Cause;
        And great to the profit of Her Cause is a mind well-rested
        That She may send thereunto dreams of beautiful things

3] Raise up successors in Her Cause
        to carry on the Great Work
        after you have departed

4] Raise up successors in Her Cause, that great may be the number of her armies

5] Happy are those who have thus greatly served Her Cause
        They shall not look with shame upon the work of their days
        When their children pass through the gates of the holy city
