75b. Levavi Oculos

1 I lift my eyes to Sion hill,
From whence I do attend
That succour God me send.
2 The mighty God me succour will,
Which heaven and earth framed,
And all things therein namee.

3 Thy foot from slip he will preserve,
And will thee safely keep,
For he will never sleep:
4 Lo he that Israel doth conserve,
No sleepe at all can him cathc:
But his eyes shall ever watch.

5 The Lord is thy warrant alway,
The Lord eke doth thee cover,
As at thy right hand ever.
6 The Sun shall not thee parch by day,
Nor the Moone not halfe so bright,
Shall with cold thee hurt by night.

7 The Lord will keep the from distresse,
And will thy life sure save,
And thou shalt also have
8 In all thy businesse good successe:
Where ever thou goest in our out,
God will thy things bring about.
