When you leave home
for labor or travel,
A song for going up to worship.
1 I look up to the hills,
but where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
who made heaven and earth.
3 He will not let you be defeated.
He who guards you never sleeps.
4 He who guards Israel
never rests or sleeps.
5 The LORD guards you.
The LORD is the shade that protects you from the sun.
6 The sun cannot hurt you during the day,
and the moon cannot hurt you at night.
7 The LORD will protect you from all dangers;
he will guard your life.
8 The LORD will guard you as you come and go,
both now and forever.
