I to the hills will lift mine eyes

I to the hills will lift mine eyes;
from whence shall come my aid?
My help is from the Lord above
who heaven and earth hath made.

He will not let thy foot be moved,
his own he safely keeps;
with watchful and untiring eye
he slumbers not, nor sleeps.

Thy faithful guardian is the Lord,
thy shelter and thy shade;
nor sun by day, nor moon by night,
need make thy soul afraid.

Words: vv. 1-3, The Psalms of David in Meeter, 1650, alt.
