Psalm 121 is here joined by the word misericordia, a Latin term meaning compassion. Impressive melodies are the hallmark of this special piece, the piano beautifully adding to the splendor of it all. The composer treats misericordia to a special musical motif that several times makes its statement. This piece is a true work of art.
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,
from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the Lord,
which made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved:
he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel
shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is thy keeper:
the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil:
he shall preserve thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in
from this time forth, and even for evermore.
