1 Unto the hills around me
I lift up my longing eyes;
whence shall my hope and my salvation come
and whence arise?
From God the Lord shall come my certain aid,
from God the Lord, who heaven and earth has made.

2 Your God will never let your footsteps stray,
his grasp is sure;
he will not sleep, but holds your life in his;
you are secure:
God never slumbers; he is always there,
and keeps his people in his tender care.

3 God is the Lord, your stronghold and defence,
your shield and shade;
he will protect by his almighty power
the life he made:
no sun shall harm by day, nor moon by night;
he is your guardian, you are his delight.

4 From every evil he shall keep your soul,
from every sin;
God shall preserve your life as you go out,
as you come in:
guarding above you, he whom we adore
will keep you henceforth and for evermore.
