Tehillim - Psalms 121: 1

שִׁ֗יר לַֽמַּ֫עֲל֥וֹת אֶשָּׂ֣א עֵ֭ינַי אֶל־הֶהָרִ֑ים מֵ֝אַ֗יִן יָבֹ֥א עֶזְרִֽי׃

"A song by David, to be sung on the steps of the Holy Temple. I lift my eyes while atop the mountains, searching from where my help will come."

A Psalm said in times when there are challenges in life, challenges that seem higher than the highest mountains. Mountains that can only be conquered by help from G-d.

The greatest challenge, in our eyes, is rising again from the dead. There is nothing, after we die, that we can do to be able to rise from the dead. Our help and trust is entirely in G-d.

Rashi quotes Sifri, which explains that his song alludes to the reward of the rigtheous in the World to Come; it sings praise to the One Whose generous mercy rewards the righteous by permitting them to make the ascents to the World te Come. Every righteous person will receive recompense according to his unique, inidividual level of piety.
