Valley of Your Arms - Psalm 124 (125)




PSALM 124 (125)


A song of ascents.


         They that trust in the Lord shall be as Mount Sion;
he that dwelleth in Jerusalem shall never be moved.
         The mountains are round about her;
so the Lord is round about His people,
from henceforth even for ever.
         For the Lord shall not suffer the rod of the wicked to rest
upon the lot of the righteous,
lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.
         Do good, O Lord, unto those that be good,
and to them that are upright in their hearts.
         As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways,
the Lord shall lead them away with the workers of iniquity.
Peace be upon Israel.



The Psalmist’s trip is going well so far. From the high excitement of hitting the road, he has leveled out to an even pleasure that comes with maintaining a decent pace on a nice journey. Being in the valley now feels to him like an embrace rather than a trap, and he knows he is going with God.





Hold me in the valley of your arms
Forever let me dwell in you
Then I will never ever fear
Or be moved for I trust in you


In your arms (peace, peace)
In your arms (peace, peace)
In the valley of your arms
In your arms (peace, peace)
In the valley of your arms
Hold me in the valley of your arms


Rule now in the valley of your arms
Let the wicked never rule
That I might never ever sin
In your hands let me be your tool


In your arms (peace, peace)
In your arms (peace, peace)
In the valley of your arms
In your arms (peace, peace)
In the valley of your arms
Hold me in the valley of your arms


Do good in the valley of your arms
To the upright in their hearts
Give us your peace eternally
And make all crooked men depart


In your arms (peace, peace)
In your arms (peace, peace)
In the valley of your arms
In your arms (peace, peace)
In the valley of your arms
Hold me in the valley of your arms
