Psalm 121 is part of a collection of psalms called ‘songs of ascent’.
They are believed to have been sung as by God’s people on pilgrimage journeys to Jerusalem.
The collection includes Psalms 120–134, and is called the Hallel which means ‘praise’ (not to be confused with the Egyptian Hallel, Psalms 113–118, which was sung or chanted at Passover and other festivals).
It’s also possible these psalms were used in the temple worship as part of the liturgy.
There are 15 short psalms in the Hallel. This sheet explores eight of them.
The questions are designed to be used by adults or children on their own, or together with a family or small group.
