Psalm 121

This has always been one of my favorite Psalms. I think it is sort of funny when our pastor wants us to share verses from the Bible at church, that I have never been able to read this scripture. The reason is, there is a elderly lady at our church who loves this Psalm also. So I know she will always read it. If anything ever happens to her, I'll stand up for her and tell everyone that this was her favorite Psalm and I'll read it in memory of her.

Psalm 121

I will lift mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. (verse 1)

My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. (verse 2)

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. (verse 3)

Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. (verse 4)

The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. (verse 5)

The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. (verse 6)

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. (verse 7)

The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore. (verse 8)

When God Ran

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

This song has been playing on our Southern Gospel radio station and I know two different groups that sing it. One of the groups that I've recently heard sing it is my Pastor, his wife, and children. This is a very beautiful song. There are just some songs that you instantly like and this was one of those songs.
