Psalm 121 – A song of ascents
I lift up my eyes to the mountains – where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip – he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you – the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm – he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
Upper Hutt is at the top of the valley, so living here we never have to look very far to see the surrounding hills. Like those hills, so is God around and about all of our daily lives.
