Venite: Levavi, Oculos! Psalm 121

We lift our eyes to the hills, where shall our help come from?
Our help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.
You are our defense, our guardian Who never slumbers and never sleeps.
How could the One Who guards us sleep, or let our feet stumble?
You will guard us against all evil, guard us body and soul;
the sun will not strike us by day, nor the moon by night
You will Guard our going out and our coming home,
from this time forth, for evermore.
Thanks be to God-Creator, Redeemer, and Giver of Life.
May the Lord be with us, may the holy angels bring us peace,
and may the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be always with us.
