Psalm 126: Thanksgiving for Restoration. Starts, "When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion." Psalm 126 was proposed by religious Zionists to be the national anthem of the State of Israel. It got rejected. But its feelings aren't hurt too bad because it later inspired the hymn "Bringing in the Sheaves" and got to appear multiple times in Little House on the Prairie (so take THAT, naysayers!)
"Bringing in the Sheaves" performed by gospel trio The Samuels
Psalm 127: Prosperity Comes from the LORD / The Builder's Psalm. Starts, "Except the Lord build the house." This psalm is recited as a prayer for protection of a newborn infant and is invoked by the Quiverfull movement, as one of the foundations for their stance that large families are a blessing from God. It is also often inscribed on buildings. Honestly, Legos should get in on this as the natural bridge between these two ideologies.
Psalm 128: The Blessedness of Him Who Fears the LORD. Starts, "Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD." Psalm 128 is used on the feast of the Holy Family, which presents the Holy Family as a model for Christian families in that all little boys should claim to be the Son of God and grow up to be tortured and murdered. Now that's a religion we can get behind! /s
Side Note: The Twelve Days of Christmas are the days between December 25th and January 6th.
The Feast of the Circumcision of Christ is a Christian celebration of the circumcision of Jesus that generally falls on January 1st (the 8th Day of Christmas).
Epiphany immediately follows the Twelve Days of Christmas and is a celebration that primarily commemorates the baptism of Jesus and his presentation to the Magi. It is held on the Sunday between January 7 through January 13.
