1. [Song of Ascents] I lift up my eyes to the mountains; where is my help to come from?

2. My help comes from Yahweh who made heaven and earth.

3. May he save your foot from stumbling; may he, your guardian, not fall asleep!

4. You see -- he neither sleeps nor slumbers, the guardian of Israel.

5. Yahweh is your guardian, your shade, Yahweh, at your right hand.

6. By day the sun will not strike you, nor the moon by night.

7. Yahweh guards you from all harm Yahweh guards your life,

8. Yahweh guards your comings and goings, henceforth and for ever.




“Para que se preocupar com o caminho pelo qual Jesus quer que você chegue à pátria celeste – pelo deserto ou pelo campo – quando tanto por um como por outro se chegará da mesma forma à beatitude eterna?” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
