Psalm 120 is a hymn for pilgrims,
traveling through this evil world
toward their Father’s house.
It is part of the Psalms of Ascents series on Psalms 120 – 134.
To download a pdf of the entire “Psalms of Ascents” series,
complete with companion devotional readings,
God of truth and mercy, save us,
Hurt, harassed, oppressed by lies,
Tempted, threatened, lured by evil
Dressed in pleasure’s sweet disguise.
See Your children, all Your own,
Here where sin seems so strong.
We are pilgrims on a journey,
Strangers where we don’t belong.
God of peace, engulfing presence,
Shepherd through this hostile place,
Great Redeemer gone before us,
How we yearn to see Your face!
Weary, needy, nearing home –
Just ahead, now in view –
We are pilgrims on a journey.
O what joy, we come to You!
