I to the hills lift up mine eyes From whence must come mine aid

Representative Text

1 I to those mountains lift mine eyes,
from whence must come mine aid:
2 Mine help must from JEHOVAH come,
who heav'n and earth has made.
3 He will not let thy foot be mov'd,
nor slumber who thee keeps:
4 Lo, He who keeps his Israel,
He slumbers not, nor sleeps.

5 The LORD thy keeper is; the LORD
thy shade on thy right hand:
6 The sun shall not smite thee by day,
nor moon by night offend.
7 JEHOVAH will preserve thy soul;
he'll keep thee from all ill:
8 Thy going out and coming in,
the LORD keep ever will.
