My Help Comes from the Lord

A Song of Ascents.

I v lift up my eyes to w the hills.
From where does my help come?
2 x My help comes from the Lord,
who y made heaven and earth.

3 He will not z let your foot be moved;
he who a keeps you will not slumber.
4 Behold, he who keeps Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The Lord is your keeper;
the Lord is your b shade on your c right hand.
6 d The sun shall not e strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.

7 The Lord will a keep you from all evil;
he will a keep your life.
8 The Lord will keep
your f going out and your coming in
from this time forth and forevermore.
