To the hills I lift mine eyes;
Whence shall help for me arise?
From the Lord shall come mine aid,
Who the Heav’n and earth has made.
He will guide through dan­gers all,
Will not suf­fer thee to fall;
He who safe His peo­ple keeps
Slumbers not and ne­ver sleeps.

Thy pro­tect­or is the Lord,
Shade for thee He will af­ford;
Neither sun nor moon shall smite,
God shall guard by day and night.
He will ev­er keep thy soul,
What would harm He will con­trol;
In the home and by the way
He will keep thee day by day.
