Psalm 129

1] How often have they thought against us, even from our earliest days — O people of Her Cause!
2] They have afflicted us from our earliest days, with unending oppression; yet they could not prevail.
3] In secret our enemies have plotted against us, to prolong our sufferings.
4] But goodly is our Heavenly Mother; She shall loosen those bonds with which they bind us.
5] Those who hate her holy city shall be confounded and repelled.
6] Like a crop that withers before it can be harvested
7] A crop without profit, a barren harvest.
8] And those who pass them by shall not say, She has favoured you.
