A favorite of mine since childhood


PSALMUS 121 (120) (from the Vulgate
1 Canticum ascensionum.
Levabo oculos meos in montes: unde veniet auxilium mihi?
2 Auxilium meum a Domino, qui fecit caelum et terram.
3 Non dabit in commotionem pedem tuum neque dormitabit, qui custodit te.
4 Ecce non dormitabit neque dormiet, qui custodit Israel.
5 Dominus custodit te, Dominus umbraculum tuum ad manum dexteram tuam.
6 Per diem sol non percutiet te, neque luna per noctem.
7 Dominus custodiet te ab omni malo; custodiet animam tuam Dominus.
8 Dominus custodiet introitum tuum et exitum tuum ex hoc nunc et usque in saeculum.
And from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer
Psalm 121. Levavi oculos.
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.
