A song to sing as we climb.
1 People who trust in the Lord are strong,
like Mount Zion.
125:1Mount Zion was a strong place in the middle of the city of Jerusalem.
Nothing can shake it. It will always be there.
2 The Lord is always near to his people,
like the mountains round Jerusalem.
He keeps his people safe, now and for ever.
125:2People who trust in the Lord are strong because God is with them. He is the one who keeps them safe.
3 Wicked people will not rule over God's own people.
They will not rule the land where righteous people live.
If they did, the righteous people might also do bad things.
4 Lord, please do good things to good, honest people.
Be kind to those who follow your good ways.
5 But as for people who follow their own bad ways,
Lord, please remove them!
Take them away, along with people who do evil things.
May Israel have peace!
