Psalm 121 (ESV)

121 A Song of Ascents.

I lift up my eyes to the hills.

From where does my help come?

My help comes from the Lord,

who made heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot be moved;

he who keeps you will not slumber.

Behold, he who keeps Israel

will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is your keeper;

the Lord is your shade on your right hand.

The sun shall not strike you by day,

nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all evil;

he will keep your life.

The Lord will keep

your going out and your coming in

from this time forth and forevermore.

• Stanza One – a question asked and answered
• Stanza Two – your Keeper is no sleeper
• Stanza Three – your Keeper is a shade from both day and night
• Stanza Four – your Keeper for life and beyond
