Psaume 121

Je lève mes yeux sur les montagnes,
d'òu me viendra le secours?
Le secours me vient de l'Eternel
qui a fait les cieux et la terre.
l'Eternel te gardera de tous mal
Il gardera ton âme
l'Eternel gardera ton départ et ton arrivée,
dès maintenant et a jamais,
Que la gloire soit au Père au Fils au Saint Esprit
comme elle était à l'origine,
maintenant et toujours
et pour les siècles des siècles,

Psalm 121

I lift my eyes to the mountains,
from where shall my help come?
Help comes to me from the Lord
who made the heavens and the earth.
the Lord will keep you from all evil
He will guard your soul
the Lord will guard your going out and your coming in,
from this time forth and forevermore,
Glory be to the Father, to the Son, to the Holy Spirit
as it was in the beginning,
now and forever
and in the ages of ages to come,
thanked 2 times
