The Lord Our Protector

A song of ascents.

1 I raise my eyes toward the mountains. Where will my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.a
3 He will not allow your foot to slip; your Protector will not slumber.
4 Indeed, the Protector of Israel does not slumber or sleep.
5 The Lord protects you; the Lord is a shelter right by your side.b
6 The sun will not strike you by day, or the moon by night.
7 The Lord will protect you from all harm; He will protect your life.
8 The Lord will protect your coming and going both now and forever.
