The Lord Will Protect His People

121 I look to the hills!
    Where will I find help?
It will come from the Lord,
    who created the heavens
    and the earth.

The Lord is your protector,
    and he won’t go to sleep
    or let you stumble.
The protector of Israel
doesn’t doze
    or ever get drowsy.

The Lord is your protector,
there at your right side
    to shade you from the sun.
You won’t be harmed
by the sun during the day
    or by the moon[a] at night.

The Lord will protect you
    and keep you safe
    from all dangers.
The Lord will protect you
    now and always
    wherever you go.
