121E. I to the Hills Will Lift My Eyes

1 I to the hills will lift my eyes;
from whence shall come my aid?
My help is from the Lord alone,
who heaven and earth has made.

2 God will not let your foot be moved,
your guardian never sleeps;
God's watchful and unslumbering care
protects and safely keeps.

3 Your faithful keeper is the Lord,
your shelter and your shade;
'neath sun or moon, by day or night,
you shalt not be afraid.

4 From evil God will keep you safe,
provide for all you need;
your going out, your coming in,
God will forever lead.
