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.
