Lyrics: Psalm 121

Levavi oculos meos in montes: unde veniet auxilium mihi.
Auxilium meum a Domino: qui fecit caelum et terram.
Non det in commotionem pedem tuum: neque dormitet qui custodit te.
Ecce non dormitabit neque dormiet: qui custodit Israel.
Dominus custodit te: Dominus protectio tua, super manum dexteram tuam.
Per diem sol non uret te: neque luna per noctem.
Dominus custodit te ab omni malo: custodiat animam tuam Dominus.
Dominus custodiat introitum tuum, et exitum tuum: ex hoc nunc, et usque in saeculum.

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills: from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh even from the Lord: who hath made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: and he that keepeth thee will not sleep.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel: shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord himself is thy keeper: the Lord is thy defence upon thy right hand;
So that the sun shall not burn thee by day: neither the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: yea, it is even he that shall keep thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out, and thy coming in: from this time forth for evermore.
