I lift up my eyes to the hills - 
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip - 
he who watches over you will not slumber;
Indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord watches over you - 
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all harm - 
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

Psalm 121
