Psalm 121

Words: The Scottish Psalter

A Psalm of Ascents

 1  I to the hills will lift mine eyes,
       from whence doth come mine aid.
 2  My safety cometh from the Lord,
       who heav'n and earth hath made.

 3  Thy foot he'll not let slide, nor will
       he slumber that thee keeps.
 4  Behold, he that keeps Israel,
       he slumbers not, nor sleeps.

 5  The Lord thee keeps, the Lord thy shade
       on thy right hand doth stay:
 6  The moon by night thee shall not smite,
       nor yet the sun by day.

 7  The Lord shall keep thy soul; he shall
       preserve thee from all ill.
 8  Henceforth thy going out and in
       God keep for ever will.
