My help cometh . . . .

. . . from The LORD:

Psalm 121, King James Version (KJV)

121 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.

3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.

6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

7 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

And for those in need of the reminder, this is written in martyr's blood over the doors of Jamaica's House of Parliament:

. . . the unjustly shed blood of a man who out of concern gently spoke unwelcome truth to power. END
