One of three settings of this psalm (two Latin, one German) published in XC Cantiones, Magdeburg, 1570.
Lyrics: Psalm 133

Siehe, wie fein und lieblich ist's, daß Brüder einträchtig bei einander wohnen!
Wie der köstliche Balsam ist, der von Aaron Haupt herabfließt in seinen ganzen Bart, der herabfließt in sein Kleid,
wie der Tau, der vom Hermon herabfällt auf die Berge Zions.
Denn daselbst verheizt der Herre Segen und Leben immer und ewiglich.

Behold, how good and joyful a thing it is: brethren, to dwell together in unity.
It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down unto the beard: even unto Aaron's beard, and went down to the skirts of his clothing.
Like as the dew of Hermon: which fell upon the hill of Sion.
For there the Lord promised his blessing: and life for evermore.
