Psalm 121

Help From the Lord

A song for the ascents.

Help From the Lord, Israel’s Watchman

I lift up my eyes to the mountains.
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot stumble.
He who watches over you will not slumber.
Yes, he who watches over Israel will not slumber.
He will not sleep.
The Lord watches over you.
The Lord is your shade at your right hand.
The sun will not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will watch to keep you from all harm.[a]
He will watch over your life.[b]
The Lord will watch over your going and your coming
    from now to eternity.
