God, our bodyguard
Hills don’t answer prayer
Road trip song1 I look up to the hills,
Where some folks go to pray.
I won’t find help there.
2 My help comes from the LORD
Who made those hills,
And everything else in heaven and earth.
3 He’ll help you stay on your feet.
He won’t let you fall.
He’s your God
And your protector day and night.
4 He watches over all of his people.
He never takes time off for a nap.
5 This isn’t just any bodyguard protecting you.
It’s the LORD.
You can stand in his shade
When the sun beats down.
6 The heat can’t touch you.
You’re safe in the dusky moonlight, too.
7 The LORD will keep you safe
When life gets dicey and dangerous.
8 When you come and go
Here and there and anywhere,
The LORD has his eye on you.
Now and forever.
The subtitle wasn’t part of the original psalm. Psalms 120-134 are called songs of ascent, possibly because Jewish pilgrims sang these songs while traveling up into the Judean hills to celebrate a Jewish holiday in Jerusalem.
