Sunday Knox: Psalm 120 (121)

(A song of ascents.)
I lift up my eyes to the hills, to find deliverance;
from the Lord deliverance comes to me, the Lord who made heaven and earth.

Never will he who guards thee allow thy foot to stumble; never fall asleep at his post!

Such a guardian has Israel, one who is never weary, never sleeps;
it is the Lord that guards thee, the Lord that stands at thy right hand to give thee shelter.

The sun’s rays by day, the moon’s by night, shall have no power to hurt thee.

The Lord will guard thee from all evil; the Lord will protect thee in danger;
the Lord will protect thy journeying and thy home-coming, henceforth and for ever.
