Psalm 121 (Listen)

My Help Comes from the Lord

A Song of Ascents.


121:1   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.

     1 A Song of degrees. I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. 2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. 3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. 4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. 5 The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand. 6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. 7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. 8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 549:
God, Who Madest Earth and Heaven

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. God, who madest earth and heaven, 
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; 
Who the day and night hast given, 
Sun and moon and starry host; 
Whose almighty hand sustains 
Earth and all that it contains: 

2. God, I thank Thee, in Thy keeping 
Safely have I slumbered here; 
Thou hast guarded me while sleeping 
From all danger, pain, and fear; 
And the cunning evil Foe 
Hath not wrought my overthrow. 

3. Let the night of my transgression 
With night’s darkness pass away. 
Jesus, into Thy possession 
I resign myself today; 
In Thy wounds I find relief 
From all sorrow, sin, and grief. 

4. Help me as the morn is breaking, 
In the spirit to arise, 
So from careless sloth awaking, 
That, when o’er the aged skies 
Shall the Judgment Day appear, 
I may see it without fear. 

5. Lead me, and forsake me never, 
Guide my wanderings by Thy Word; 
As Thou hast been, be Thou ever 
My Defense, my Refuge, Lord. 
Never safe except with Thee, 
Thou my faithful Guardian be. 

6. O my God, I now commend me 
Wholly to Thy mighty hand; 
As the powers that Thou dost lend me 
Let me use at Thy command. 
Lord, my Shield, my Strength divine, 
Keep me with Thee,–I am Thine.
