I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. Psalm 121:1–2


Words: From The Psal­ter (Pitts­burgh, Penn­syl­van­ia: Unit­ed Pres­by­ter­ian Board of Pub­li­ca­tion, 1912), num­ber 345.

Music: Dun­dee Scot­tish Psal­ter, 1615 (🔊 pdf nwc).


I to the hills will lift my eyes;
O whence shall come my aid?
My help is from the Lord alone,
Who Heav’n and earth has made.

He will not let thy foot be moved,
Thy guard­ian ne­ver sleeps;
With watch­ful and un­slum­ber­ing care,
His own He safe­ly keeps.

Thy faith­ful keep­er is the Lord,
Thy shel­ter and thy shade;
’Neath sun or moon, by day or night,
Thou shalt not be afraid.

From ev­il He will keep thee safe,
For thee He will pro­vide;
Thy go­ing out, thy com­ing in,
Forever He will guide.
