Psalm 121

(from Day 27 Morning Prayer)

Levavi oculus

  1. I WILL lift up mine eyes unto the hills: from whence cometh my help.
  2. My help cometh even from the Lord: who hath made heaven and earth.
  3. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: and he that keepeth thee will not sleep.
  4. Behold, he that keepeth Israel: shall neither slumber nor sleep.
  5. The Lord himself is thy keeper: the Lord is thy defence upon thy right hand;
  6. So that the sun shall not burn thee by day: neither the moon by night.
  7. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: yea, it is even he that shall keep thy soul.
  8. The Lord shall preserve thy going out, and thy coming in: from this time forth for evermore.
