More about Psalms of Assent

Psalm 127 is one of a group of psalms that are called 'The Songs of Ascent'. They comprise Psalms 120-134, and are often called the Pilgrim Songs. Psalm 127 has been attributed to Solomon, a few others to King David, and the rest are anonymous. These songs were sung as the pilgrims climbed the hills to Jerusalem and finally reached the Temple to celebrate one of the annual festivals.

Many of these psalms have been incorporated in Christians songs and hymns that we use for worship today to express our love for God. You might like to look up the Psalms of Ascent - Psalms 120-134.
