132. Upward I lift mine eyes

1 Upward I lift mine eyes,
From God is all mine aid:--
The God who built the skies,
And earth's foundations laid.
God is the tower to which I fly:
His grace is nigh in every hour.

2 My feet shall never slide
Or fall in fatal snares;
While God, my guard and guide,
Defends me from my fears.
Those wakeful eyes that never sleep,
His children keep when dangers rise.

3 No burning heats by day,
Nor blasts of evening air,
Shall take my health away,
If God be with me there.
Thou art my sun, and thou my shade,
To guard my head by night or noon.
