Mine eyes look toward the mountains,
Help cometh from on high;
From God who ne­ver slumbers,
Whose care is ever nigh.
My foot shall not be movèd,
My keeper is the Lord;
He ne­ver shall forsake me;
I trust me to His Word.

God keepeth me from falling,
Fulfilleth all my need;
His love doth e’er uphold me,
In faithful word and deed.
He keepeth me from evil,
My onward way doth trace,
My going and my coming,
He crowneth with His grace.
