Representative Text

1 I to the hills will lift my eyes.
From whence shall come my aid?
My help is from the Lord alone,
who heav’n and earth has made.

2 God will not let your foot be moved,
your guardian never sleeps.
God’s watchful and unslumb’ring care
protects and safely keeps.

3 Your faithful keeper is the Lord,
your shelter and your shade.
’Neath sun or moon, by day or night,
you shall not be afraid.

4 From evil God will keep you safe,
provide for all you need.
Your going out, your coming in,
God will forever lead.
