Abstract
  • IE TCD MS 4166, folios 16-27, contain the choral composition 'If God build not the house' (Psalm CXXVII/127) by Ina Boyle, set to the words of Phineas Fletcher. 6 copies. "If God build not the house, and lay The ground-work sure, whoever build It cannot stand one stormy day If God be not the city's shield; If He be not their bars and wall In vain is watch-tower, men, and all. Though then thou wakst while others rest, Though rising thou preventest the sun; Though with lean care thou daily feast Thy labours lost and thou undone. But God his child will feed and keep And draw the curtains to his sleep."
