1 I to the hills lift up my eyes;
from where shall help be given?
My help comes only from the Lord
who made the earth and heaven.

2 He will not let your foot be moved;
guard over you he keeps:
he watches over Israel
and slumbers not, nor sleeps.

3 Strong is the Lord, your shield and shade;
safe are you in his sight:
sun shall not hurt your life by day
nor shall the moon by night.

4 So shall the Lord keep you from harm;
he will keep safe and sure
your going out, your coming in
from now, for evermore.
