A Psalm of Ascent
I look to the mountains,
Does my strength come from the mountains?
No, my strength comes from God,
who made heaven, and earth, and mountains.
God won’t let you stumble,
your Guardian God won’t fall asleep
Not on your life!
Israel’s Guardian will never doze or sleep.
God is your Guardian,
Right at your side to protect you-
Shielding your from sunstroke.
God guards you from every evil,
God guards your very life.
God guards you when you leave and when you return.
God guards you now, God guards you always!
As we continue on through Lent, let us remember that we are never alone, even at our loneliest. Perhaps this version of Psalm 121 from Eugene Peterson can guide us on our way and give us added strength for the journey.
