I to the hills will lift my eyes

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

God will not let your foot be moved,
your guardian never sleeps.  
God's watchful and unslumbering care
protects and safely keeps.

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

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