Psalmus 120 (121)
Language: Latin 
Available translation(s): DUT
1 [Canticum graduum.] Levavi oculos meos in montes,
  unde veniet auxilium mihi.
2 Auxilium meum a Domino,
  qui fecit cælum et terram.
3 Non det in commotionem pedem tuum,
  neque dormitet qui custodit te.
4 Ecce non dormitabit neque dormiet
  qui custodit Israël.
5 Dominus custodit te;
  Dominus protectio tua super manum dexteram tuam.
6 Per diem sol non uret te,
  neque luna per noctem.
7 Dominus custodit te ab omni malo;
  custodiat animam tuam Dominus.
8 Dominus custodiat introitum tuum et exitum tuum,
  ex hoc nunc et usque in sæculum.

Ein Lied im höhern Chor. Ich hebe meine...
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Latin 
1 [Ein Lied im höhern Chor.] Ich hebe meine Augen auf zu den Bergen, 
  von welchen mir [Hilfe kommt]1.
2 Meine [Hilfe kommt]1 von dem [Herrn]2,
  der Himmel und Erde gemacht hat.
3 Er wird deinen Fuß nicht gleiten lassen,
  und der dich behütet, schläft nicht.
4 Siehe, der Hüter Israels schläft
  noch schlummert nicht.
5 Der Herr behütet dich,
  der Herr ist dein Schatten über deiner rechten Hand,
6 daß dich des Tages die Sonne
  nicht steche noch der Mond des Nachts.
7 Der Herr behüte dich vor allem Übel,
  er behüte deine Seele.
8 Der Herr behüte deinen Ausgang und Eingang
  von nun an bis in Ewigkeit.
