1 A Canticle in steps. I have lifted up my eyes to the mountains; from thence help will come to me.
2 My help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
3 May he not allow your foot to be moved, and may he not slumber, who guards you.
4 Behold, he who guards Israel will neither sleep, nor slumber.
5 The Lord is your keeper, the Lord is your protection, above your right hand.
6 The sun will not burn you by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord guards you from all evil. May the Lord guard your soul.
8 May the Lord guard your entrance and your exit, from this time forward and even forever.
