We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

I Lift up My Eyes to the Mountains

I lift up my eyes to the mountains: When shall come my help?

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains:
whence shall come my help?
My help shall come from the Lord
who made heaven and earth.
May God never let you stumble!
The protector of Israel
sleeps not nor slumbers.

2 The Lord is your guard and your shade,
standing at your right side.
By day the sun shall not smite you
nor the moon in the night.
God protects you from all danger,
and guards your soul as you come and go
now and forever.
