I to the hills will lift mine eyes

Representative Text

1 I to the hills will lift mine eyes.

2 Thy foot he'll not let slide, nor will
he slumber that thee keeps.
Behold, he that keeps Israel,
he slumbers not, nor sleeps.

3 The Lord thee keeps, the Lord thy shade

the moon by night thee shall not smite,
nor yet the sun by day.

4 The Lord shall keep thy soul: he shall
preserve thee from all ill.
Henceforth thy going out and in
God keep for ever will.
