Bible text(s)

The LORD our Protector

1I look to the mountains;

where will my help come from?

2My help will come from the LORD,

who made heaven and earth.

3He will not let you fall;

your protector is always awake.

4The protector of Israel

never dozes or sleeps.

5The LORD will guard you;

he is by your side to protect you.

6The sun will not hurt you during the day,

nor the moon during the night.

7The LORD will protect you from all danger;

he will keep you safe.

8He will protect you as you come and go

now and for ever.

Psalms 121:1-8GNBOpen in Bible reader

The Security of God's People

1Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion,

which can never be shaken, never be moved.

2As the mountains surround Jerusalem,

so the LORD surrounds his people

now and for ever.

Psalms 125:1-2GNBOpen in Bible reader

A Prayer for Help

1From the depths of my despair I call to you, LORD.

2Hear my cry, O Lord;

listen to my call for help!

3If you kept a record of our sins,

who could escape being condemned?

4But you forgive us,

so that we should stand in awe of you.

5I wait eagerly for the LORD's help,

and in his word I trust.

6I wait for the Lord

more eagerly than watchmen wait for the dawn —

than watchmen wait for the dawn.

7Israel, trust in the LORD,

because his love is constant

and he is always willing to save.

8He will save his people Israel

from all their sins.
