 Psalm
121  
1 I lift up my eyes to the hills; *
from where does my help come?
 
2 My help comes from the LORD, *
the maker of heaven and earth.
 
3 He will not cause your foot to stumble *
and he who watches over you will not fall asleep.
 
4 Behold, he who keeps watch over Israel *
shall neither slumber nor sleep;
 
5 The LORD himself watches over you; *
the LORD is your shade at your right hand,
 
6 So that the sun shall not strike you by day, *
nor the moon by night.
 
7 The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; *
it is he who shall keep you safe.

 

8 The LORD shall watch over your going out and
your coming in, *
from this time forth for evermore.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: *
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
