Psalm 121: My God, My Guide, My Guard


Psalm 121 is a beautiful Psalm of protection that begins with the words, “I lift my eyes up to the hills.” In keeping with my Pilgrim Psalms project, this song is simple enough that it can be sung without musical notation, as it is written in a leader/echo format which makes it easy to learn: simply listen and sing back.

Raising my eyes to the mountains for help,
but the God who made the mountains is greater still.
God will guide me on my way,
through the dark of night and heat of day.
God will take my hand
when I journey out or return again.
God will guard my life always.
