    Psalm 121

    A pilgrimage song.

    121 I raise my eyes toward the mountains.
        Where will my help come from?
    My help comes from the Lord,
        the maker of heaven and earth.
    God won’t let your foot slip.
        Your protector won’t fall asleep on the job.
    No! Israel’s protector
        never sleeps or rests!
    The Lord is your protector;
        the Lord is your shade right beside you.
    The sun won’t strike you during the day;
        neither will the moon at night.
    The Lord will protect you from all evil;
        God will protect your very life.
    The Lord will protect you on your journeys—
        whether going or coming—
        from now until forever from now.
