Representative Text

1 I will lift up mine eyes to the mountains,
For my help surely comes from the Lord;
I will drink of His rivers and fountains,
I will feed on His excellent word.

Lift up thine eyes unto the mountains,
For all thy help must come from the Lord;
Drink of His streams and crystal bright fountains,
Flowing so free from His excellent word.

2 He will guard me from stumbling or falling,
For He’s always my Keeper and Guide;
In temptations and trials appalling,
He will ever be there by my side. [Chorus]

3 Lo, the sun shall not smite me nor harm me,
For the Lord is my shade ev’rywhere;
And the tempter can never disarm me,
But the crown of the victor I’ll wear. [Chorus]

4 And the Lord will protect me from danger,
He will ever be keeping my soul;
And in heaven I shall be no stranger,
While the years of eternity roll. [Chorus]
