Songs for the Sojourn (The Psalms of Ascent): Christ's Ascension & Ours

June 2, 2019: Ascension Sunday

SCRIPTURE: Psalm 120

A Song of Ascents.

[1] In my distress I called to the LORD,

and he answered me.

[2] Deliver me, O LORD,

from lying lips,

from a deceitful tongue.

[3] What shall be given to you,

and what more shall be done to you,

you deceitful tongue?

[4] A warrior's sharp arrows,

with glowing coals of the broom tree!

[5] Woe to me, that I sojourn in Meshech,

that I dwell among the tents of Kedar!

[6] Too long have I had my dwelling

among those who hate peace.

[7] I am for peace,

but when I speak, they are for war! (ESV)
