Psalme CXXI
XI. Henry Lok
VNTO the hils I lift my eyes,
  From whence my helpe shall grow;
Euen to the Lord which fram’d the heauens,
  And made the deeps below.
He will not let my feete to slip;        5
  My watchman neither sleepes:
Behold the Lord of Israell still
  His flocke in safety keepes.
The Lord is my defence; he doth
  About me shadow cast;        10
By day nor night the sunne nor moone
  My limbs shall burne or blast.
He shall preserue me from all ill,
  And me from sinne protect;
My going in, and comming forth,        15
  He euer shall direct.
