A Psalm of Ascents
1I to the hills will lift mine eyes,
from whence doth come mine aid.
2My safety cometh from the Lord,
who heav'n and earth hath made.
3Thy foot he'll not let slide, nor will
he slumber that thee keeps.
4Behold, he that keeps Israel,
he slumbers not, nor sleeps.
5The Lord thee keeps, the Lord thy shade
on thy right hand doth stay:
6The moon by night thee shall not smite,
nor yet the sun by day.
7The Lord shall keep thy soul; he shall
preserve thee from all ill.
8Henceforth thy going out and in
God keep for ever will.
