The Lord Guards His People

A song for going up to worship.

121 I look up to the hills,
    but where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    who made heaven and earth.

He will not let you be defeated.
    He who guards you never sleeps.
He who guards Israel
    never rests or sleeps.
The Lord guards you.
    The Lord is the shade that protects you from the sun.
The sun cannot hurt you during the day,
    and the moon cannot hurt you at night.
The Lord will protect you from all dangers;
    he will guard your life.
The Lord will guard you as you come and go,
    both now and forever.

Psalm 121

A song of ascents.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven(A) and earth.(B)

He will not let your foot slip—
    he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches(C) over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord watches over(D) you—
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun(E) will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all harm(F)
    he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.(G)
