Description: Psalm 121 has been set to music by many composers (Schubert, Mendelssohn). Sometimes also in the official French version (Manneke), as published as by Louis Segond (LSG). Here I also chose the French version for this work. From the complete French text, which is listed below with Dutch translation, I have selected a few inspiring phrases.
The work evolves from anxious awaiting the rescue by the Eternal to a steady trust therein.

Je lève mes yeux vers les montagnes,
Ik hef mijn ogen op naar de bergen,
