Psalm 121

A pilgrimage song.

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.
3 God won't let your foot slip. Your protector won't fall asleep on the job.
4 No! Israel's protector never sleeps or rests!
5 The LORD is your protector; the LORD is your shade right beside you.
6 The sun won't strike you during the day; neither will the moon at night.
7 The LORD will protect you from all evil; God will protect your very life.
8 The LORD will protect you on your journeys— whether going or coming— from now until forever from now.
